The letter said the envoy’s “alleged non-cooperation with the host authorities” has the potential of straining the cordial relations between both countries.

The letter read, “On the authority of the Honourable Minister, I have the duty to recall you to Headquarters for consultations, as a matter of urgency.

“This is necessary to enable Headquarters to have your response to the complaints by the Government of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, on your alleged non-cooperation with the host authorities, a situation which has the potential of straining the cordial relations between Nigeria and Saudi Arabia.

“Kindly hand over the affairs of the Mission to the most senior Foreign Service Officer and report to Headquarters for consultation.
