Nigeria called it “an egregious act of international delinquency by the Indonesian state”.
It vowed to review bilateral relations with the south-east Asian nation.
The video showed one of the officials putting his hand on the diplomat’s head and pushing it back against a seat.
Between the screams of protest, Ibrahim repeated: “I can’t breathe.”
Later in the one-minute-and-30-second clip Ibrahim was heard saying: “My neck, my neck.”
Ibrahim had been detained on a street in the Indonesian capital, Jakarta.
