  1. The truth is most Nigerians are completely noise makers wherever they reside, especially the Igbos’ i have to be honest here. The most funny part of it all is when you check what they are doing,in terms of crime, they know nothing comparing to the crime other nationalities (white) are committing.

    For the fact we do not have functioning government except corrupt officials. . Nigerians are always made the scapegoat.

  2. I KNOW SOME USELESS NIGERIAN HERE IN UK,HELPING UK PEOPLE TO HUMILIATE AND FUSTRATE THEIR FOLLOW NIGERIAN AND BECAUSE NIGERIAN HAS ACCEPTED THAT OFFER FROM OYIBO FOR 20 POUND OR THEY PROMISE THEM SOMETHING,BECAUSE OF THAT NIGERIAN HAVE NO VALUE IN HERE IN UK,NIGERIAN ARE STILL INVOLVE IN SALVE TRADE SELLING THEIR FOLLOW NIGERIAN FOR PEANUT,
