The Canadian High Commission in Abuja on Tuesday suspended operations after a fire incident at the embassy on Monday.
No staff except security personnel were seen at the embassy at 13010G, Palm Close, Diplomatic Drive, in the Central Business District of Abuja.
The high commission had, on its official X platform, announced the temporary suspension of its operations after a section of the embassy in Abuja was gutted by fire.
The announcement did not comment on providing visa and immigration services for persons seeking to visit or emigrate to Canada. Also, there is no offer of services to Canadians visiting and living in Nigeria and to Canadians in Equatorial Guinea, as well as Sao Tome and Principe.
Such services include adoption and surrogacy, birth abroad, citizenship services, marriage abroad, passport services, notarial services, studying abroad, and visa and immigration services.
