“A total of 50 black people, mainly young, are reported to have been stabbed or gunned down in London since January

“This included nine Nigerian youth killed in London and other parts of the United Kingdom,” the statement added.

  1. Not only in Nigeria but all over the world, Nigerians should stop joining gangs. I believe those killings are gang related

  2. The growing trend of Nigerian children westernized and completely losing our culture, values and manners is alarming. I just told one young man in the court house this morning to pull up his pants (trousers). How can people respect you when you don’t respect yourself and look like a junky? I wonder how parents allow their children leave home under their watch, dressed like hooligans. Are adults not supposed to control, advice and reprimand the young? I remember commenting that my nephew visiting me some years ago, dressed responsibly and my sister’s response was “for where, who born am to dress like a thug?” His father who’s our brother would otherwise beat the hell out of him. That boy graduated with a First Class in Economics from a London university in 2016 and has a fantastic job, at 22 years. He earns enough money to feed the entire family, and this is just the beginning of his life. Those that will go far in life don’t join gangs and don’t disrespect elders or authority. Parents, guide your children and don’t be afraid to discipline, correct and reprimand them while it matters. The trivial things we chase around won’t matter later if our children don’t turn out well. We are their parents, not their friends. Some lines must never be crossed, no matter what.
