The British Deputy High Commission in Lagos is sad to confirm the sudden and unexpected death of Deputy High Commissioner Peter Carter. Peter joined HM Diplomatic Service in 1984 and was an experienced career diplomat. He had previously served as Consul General in Milan and then as the British Ambassador to Estonia before becoming Deputy High Commissioner in Lagos in 2013 where he made an exceptional contribution to the UK’s relationship with Nigeria. Peter will be sorely missed by his family, friends and colleagues.
