nigerians stranded russia world cup

Yesterday a group of Nigerians who fell prey to human traffickers were rescued by an NGO who rescues victims of Human Trafficking in Russia.

The victims, mostly men said an agency in Nigeria sold then world cup ID cards that allowed them to enter Russia without a visa with a promise to find them work.

But on reaching Russia, the men discovered that the agency gave them fake return tickets.

The victims camped outside the Nigerian embassy in Moscow asked for help but sadly no officials of the embassy came out right away to address them.

Moments later, Nigeria’s Ambassador to Russia was seen addressing the group.



While many blamed the heartless traffickers who lured them to Russia with false promise, most people who commented on the video blamed the desperate youths who refused to verify the offer before embarking on the journey.

  1. It’s good, make una experience abroad small, you go dey question why your brother or sister never make am for abroad. I just wish most Nigerians can be shipped to abroad to spend a month,then ship them back to tell their stories……… But my greatest blame still goes to Nigeria government, the politicians in Nigeria are all wicked.

  2. dey used your desperation against you
    Next time you will learn to be contented in ur country. Instead of running away, prayer for her peace like others

  3. At least you have travelled out. Just make sure Russia doesnt end up using you to test their newly manufactured weapons
