Nov 5, 2013 – Nigerian Killed In Goa India By Indian Drug Dealers, 53 Nigerian Protesters Arrested

“Nigerians Are Like Cancer” – Says Goan Minister

A rivalry war between drug dealers in Goa, India has led to the brutal murder of a Nigerian citizen.

Goan Police officials claim the man was stabbed to death last week during a rivalry war between Goan citizens and Nigerian drug traffickers while local media reports said the Nigerian was hacked to death by a group of Goan drug traffickers, while five other Nigerians suffered stab wounds.

Nigeria told India on Tuesday that it feared for the safety of its nationals in the resort state of Goa after one of its citizens was slain and a local legislator compared Nigerians to “cancer”.

Nigeria’s High Commission called the death a “cold-blooded” killing.

After the murder, over 200 Nigerians took to the street to protest the killing of their fellow citizen, chasing a police hearse carrying the corpse of the dead Nigerian and putting the body on the road. 53 of the protesters were arrested by Goan Police officials.

Following the demonstration, which blocked Goa’s main highway for several hours, Goa’s chief minister Manohar Parrikar asked police to track down Nigerians living illegally in the former Portuguese colony so that they could be deported.

After the protest, a minister in the state’s Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party government, Dayanand Mandrekar, stirred more controversy by saying: “Nigerians are like cancer”.

Nigeria’s High Commission issued a diplomatic note and demanded on Tuesday that the security of its nationals be assured. It also called for the immediate arrest of those who killed its citizen.

“We have lost one of our nationals in a cold-blooded murder,” Nigerian High Commission press spokesman Tokunbo Falohun told the Press Trust of India.

“The guilty should be immediately apprehended and brought to justice and they should also compensate the family of the victim,” the envoy said.

The previous day, another High Commission official warned of repercussions against Indians living in Nigeria if Goa did not stop “evicting Nigerians” from the state and failed to arrest the killers.

Asked if there will be any “repercussions” from the murder, Falohun said Tuesday there would be none if the matter was “justifiably” dealt with by Indian authorities.

“There is a large Indian community working in Nigeria. There are two temples in Lagos and all Indians have freedom to worship and for their other activities. We also are demanding the same,” Falohun said.

Meanwhile, India’s foreign ministry spokesman Syed Akbaruddin said in New Delhi that he was sure that the row could be settled “amicably”.

“We have been assured that the investigation (into the murder) is underway,” he said.

Insult to injury. Can you imagine them comparing Nigerians to cancer.

There are millions of Indians living and working in Nigeria today especially in Lagos state.

Nigerians are graceful people that accommodate people from all over the world

We wish other countries can start treating them with some level of respect.

  1. I dont blame u mr minister,i blame our govt for nt making and doing wat they are supposed to do to make the country good.we are like cancer to india bcos we fly to india at every sickness and our govt can’t just put in money and develop the very little things we ought to have in our country and the money is just there,i mean everywhere but they decide to use it for their private wants not needs this time.

    • You are very right ola.They actually caused it.Any cancer sickness,they are going there,headache,stomach disorder,they are flying there.so they have taken us for granted,because they have seen themselves as messiah to Nigerians.if government do the right thing,this see finish,would not have happened.i now understand why 90per of illness from Nigeria result to death.They always kill Nigerians,and say the treatment wasn’t successful.if justice is not taken,they all India’s should be repatriate.imagine these garlic stinking people referring to Nigerians as cancer.Arifi!

    • I have several nigerian pastors and friends that i respect and love. {am not a nigerian} i have lived in nigeria for some years.nigerians are accomodating but to tell you the truth most nigerians who are out of Nigeria they do bad business to survive.its either they are selling drugs,doing all 419 acts and they even sell licences and passports and even fake school certificates,so this is why they are getn bad names.in every country there are good n bad pipo but coz of the population of nigerians out there ,its easy to notice them coz 7out of 10 nigerians out there they r into some bad business coz they say”we have to survive”

      • For God’s sake what is wrong with the upbringing of the Igbo race, what is their life orientation that an average Igbo man is a criminal, an Igbo man is seen as a 419 scammer, criminal or an armed robber anywhere he goes until he proves otherwise. Why are the Igbo people destroying the name of Nigeria this way that has turned every Nigerian into a loughing stock wherever the go. The Igbo man looks to get money whatever it takes to fo so just to go raise his ego level in his village, he wants to boast he has arrived and does not even care if the source of his ‘arrival’ is by killing, maiming, stealing, scamming, duping others, robbery, and whatever crime and end up destroying the good image of other law abiding Nigerians.

        Go to America, Europe, Asia, anywhere in Africa, Nigerians constitute the largest number of immigrant prisoners and 99% of this number are Igbo people, In Thailand, Indonasia, China, Australia, South Africa, Ghana, Britain, Holland, Kenya, India, Cambodia, Philipines, Bangladesh, and even in Russia, everywhere in the world the Igbo man is present doing all the unimaginable things all in the name of making money and getting back to his village for showmanship and does’nt care about the image of Nigeria, the question is; are the Igbos the only Nigerians,? why are all other 250 ethnic tribes not so criminal minded as the Igbo is, what is the orientation of the average Igbo man, why has the Igbo constitute himself an economic migrant nuisance and dotted everywhere to carry out criminal activities of this scale, will the Igbo race continue like this till eternity unabated,?

        Nigeria belongs to every Nigerian and it beholds on everyone to hold the good name and integrity of Nigeria in high esteem. The Igbos are destroying the name of Nigeria at a very collosal rate and appeal should go to the Igbo elders to reorientate the Igbo youth anywhere and everywhere that Nigeria is the only place place they can call home and therefore safeguard the integrity of the nation Nigeria, more importantly should head back home to their ancestrial Igbo land and develop it to be a place their generation unborn will inherit and be proud of. The Igbo should stop laying claim to other peoples territory as they have attempted to do in recent past in Lagos and even claiming the Ga people Accra Ghana came from Igbo race of Nigeria; another attempt to begin to establish falsehood in order to entrench foothold on a territory that the Igbo man has no relation or any ancesstral linkage. The Igbo people are just a recent migrant in Ghana, the Hausa and the Yorubas have been living in Ghana for almost 200 years and have integrated effectively with about the 7th generations of the two still living in Ghana. The Hausa and the Yorubas are considered statutorily none ideginous Ghanaian tribes and the Igbo is not so recognised, so why the two tribes do not bother acquiring any foreigner residetial identifications to live in Ghana, while the Igbos rush for identification cards, moreso because the Igbo hardly are able to integrate wherever they choose to live because of their peculier dubious and criminal orientation or charracters.

        The Igbo man should protect the name of Nigeria becuse their bad behaviour is robbing off negatively on all law abiding Nigerians everywhere in the world. Fotunately some countries are begining to identify who the Igbo tribe is and their criminal history and are begining to separate the wheat from chaff. The prayer of all other decent Nigerians is that the Igbo man and his criminal activities be known and separated distinctly from the other well mannered Nigerians wherever they live. LONG LIVE NIGERIA.

      • Tina I have one question for you because i guess are ignorant of the whole thing.Do nigerians teach them bad business or do they join them. If a business has been existing any body can join so you better control your language while in public forum. There are lots of foreign mafias in Nigeria so …..?If you want to know there is no foreign nationals that is very welcome in India. Even outside their place they are very discriminative.

        • Is not that they travel abroad to join them is something they chose to do willing in order to impress or live bigger than they should. They are not contented; for instance, in Nigeria, where yahoo boys have given Nigerians bad names. There is hardly anyone living in the western world that has not received one type of scam email which mostly comes from Nigerians in Nigeria or from Nigerians in other part of the world who have cohorts they work with. Additionally, when you talk about fraud, they are always being arrested at least to my little know of the situation in the USA and the arrest is always a massive one. However, do not get me wrong because in rewarding chosen fields and professions, Nigerians are always striving. The only bad thing is that bad news usually takes much more weight in the society than good news.

      • i agree with Tina because of my personal experience.Nigerians are involved in wrong doings because of their own government, which is not at all sorry to say, very corrupt itself.the example of which is that instead of punishing the Nigerian criminals who are living abroad like the 419 scammers,drug dealers etc they are supporting them and making them look innocent .had the government dealt with such criminals with an iron hand ,there is no doubt Nigerian would be respected .A friend of mine put his trust in some Nigerians ,who were actually scammers (later came to know about it)and they took 4.5 crore rupees from him .the victim is above 60 years,heart patient with kidney problems and a man who is highly honest,upright .All his life he never earned a single penny by fraud or unjust ways.The simple man trusted the foreigners ,put his faith in them,sold all his life earning thinking he is doing fair business but these people having no moral and self respect defrauded him.one of them was arrested but is on bail and the case is in court.The irony is that the president of nigerian community ,instead of helping the victim is trying to help out the culprit and i personally believe that he has helped the main culprit leave Islamabad for Lahore .this clearly shows that he must also be getting a share other wise he would have put his foot forward and helped in catching the culprits and compensating the ailing man.I pray day and night one of the holy names ( YA MUNTAQIMU ) which means the avenger and INSHALLAH these black hearted people will soon come to an end which will be an example to the entire world.This fraud took place in June and July 2013 and still in court .No single Nigerian living here in Pakistan had the guts or dignity to help in catching the culprits.I believe they don’t have any self respect and this includes their political rulers who act like those immoral parents who cover up the shit of their kids and not teaching them the what is right and what is wrong.I just hope i get a chance to behead these culprits myself because they did very wrong to a harmless man.Had they honestly worked with this man I guarantee you people ,these culprits would have been billionaires and respected.Now they are like DOGS waging their tails for money.Very rightly deserved to be called CANCER.If anyone disagrees then be MAN enough to come and help in apprehending these criminals and compensating the victim.(WHICH I BELIEVE NOT EVEN MR.GOODLUCK JONATHAN IS?)MAY GOD MAKE THESE SCAMMERS SUFFER FOR THE OLD AILING MANS TEARS.AMIN SUMA AMIN.

  2. No wonder the state is called Goa, the people living there are nothing but useless he goats with no respect for their fellow human beings

    • Mr.Lamido please open up your eyes and stop pitying Nigerians by taking cover in the colour of their skin.It is not the skin that is black it is infact the heart.U cant runaway by simply saying that people are racist.Gone are those days of ignorance, today only he is respected who has a pure heart.The colour of skin doesnot matter .

  15. it’s a painful thing to see these things happening this way, just the same way Indians are treating some Nigerians here in Doha Qatar who are working under them what is happening. Nigerians are not respected or treat fairly in diaspora at all, our Government have to do some thing about this .

  16. can u imagine d indians dat are dieing of hunger,yet d hav d impectuse 2 insult nigerians.anyway d blames should go 2 our leaders who did’nt provide good opportunities 4 d citizens

  17. Bobo or whatever ur name is you re very stupid for mentioning igbo tribe in this case. Did anybody tell that the person killed is an igbo guy, but even if he is an igbo guy is he not a fellow Nigerian like you. please if you don’t know what to write just shut up ok. fool

  18. let us not blame the India Ruler but let us see point out here and blame our leader because many graduate are out there sicking for jobs but is either there ask them to pay money before work or if you are a woman u give out your self same to man, so let us now blame our leaders because instead of them to give us job and congratulate our hand work there neither pick up some people from outside the country to work with them, so anything that happen should know body blame anyone.

    our leaders please am pleading you people should rise now and make our country a better place even me and tired, common thing like schooling here in this country is very had if strike did not hold you one thing will hold you, mmmmmmmmm God will help us in this country. Amen.

    I pray that God will not allow our leaders to sleep well until they notice or fill what we are going through, and they release Nigeria money so that we can get back to school or have a better job, Amen

  19. Dear commentators in this forum, pls join me as we mourn our fellow commentator BOBO who just gave up the ghost after commemting in this forum. I have just been informed that he died of cardiac arrest as a result of his hatred for igbos. may his soul rest in the bossom of the pit where he will be tormented daily by satanic ants and never re-incarnate in our country nigeria. May in be Togo.

    • Nma or whatever you call yourself, what you need to do is to address the Igbo disgraceful and cronic criminal behaviour in Nigeria and around the world instead of calling for the obituary of the commentator, God is not gonna listen to the wish of an Igbo criminal for HIS jurgement on humans. The Igbo failure to accept their guilt of criminal behaviour is what continues to be the fertile and breeding grounds for younger ones to shun education for 419 Scam and armed robbery, God is not an Igbo man so HE is prudent in HIS decisions to mankind.

      You know clearly every Igbo man is born with CRIME his middle name, he grows up to only actuallise and practicalise the criminality. The Igbo man is first and foremost a criminal or armed robber until hi proves otherwise. Igbo criminal statistic around the world is too staggering & stunning. Nigeria is for more than 250 ethnic tribes so let no Igbo grid destroy the country.

  20. Tina, what a stupid thing to say, do mean that all Nigerian who obtained certificates from outside Nigeria are fraud. Yes there are some bad Nigerians who engaged in shady businesses, but majority of Nigerians are very hard working and dedicated people, if you go Europe and see how Nigerians are working and at the same time studying. Some of these countries Don’t want Nigerians to succeed because, they know we can compete anywhere in the world. How are even sure that these Nigerians committed the crime they are being accused of. This is we’re our Government should demand for a proper investigation. No life of a Goan that is better than that any Nigerian.

  21. bobo,my calling igbo,the victim in question is a yoruba man y did u take it upon yourself to insult igbo?don’t u see any good thing about igbo?igbos are the first to own indigeneous car manufacturing company in west africa,it’s becos of our industry that we excel building and developing the forest in lagos,deserts in northern nigeria,it’s bcos of our unrelenting spirit we fought nigeria without major external solicite for 3year before nigerians employed USSR,British and french that conquered us,if nigeria has nothing to do with us,let them allow us have independent country(BIAFRA)And see if u will enjoy our crude oil enriched land.IGBO KWENU……. [email protected]

    • Dany, don’t you see the I***s are bunch of idiots, how can you choose to develop the forest of Lagos and tye desert of the north at the expense of your Igbo land. I have never seen a set of economic migrant race as the Igbos anywhere in the world, even the Hausa in the desert loves his desert territory and you Igbo claims to develop the Hausa land,???? I now agree fully the Igbo man has lost all senses of pride of belonging and of whom the Igbo race is. No wonder the Igbo man is treated with disdain and looked down upon wherever they live in Nigeria esp. in the Hausa north where you are slauttered like fowls whenever there’s a slight comflict. Why won’t the Igbo man go to develop his Igbo land and stop constituting a nuisance on other people land. Shame on the I*** race.

  22. Indians are very wicked inproper people and I dnt blame them its all because of our bad and corrupt leaders if not , an Indian fool will not open their galic smelling mouth to call Nigerians cancer . I just wish our system will be ruled by sincere people so that our people all over the world will come back home I think by then no useless racist will have to say nonsense about Nigerians anymore afterall the soo call white are all over Africa but thank God they can explore us anylonger stupid juju Indians that dnt have police to curtails the killings of Nigerians.

  23. You guys need to stop insulting ourselves and need to think way forward to rescue our fellow Nigerians out there by letting our govt knows what they are doing is totally rubbish fighting for the post in order to embezzle our money rather to create a good jobs and for their dearly citizens.India is one of most corrupt countries in the world……..india is more than cancer indeed.I placed blame on Goa minister who does not serve to be called a minister.

  24. Bobo

    please can you tell us your tribe, you are calling over 40 million Igbo tribe criminals, I believed you lacked exposure, you are timid your are jealous and under achieved , you hate the igbos bobo, but you live and see that the igbos are Isrealites who you cannot do with out. Bobo ofe mmanu you dirty fool . BoBo your a Pig…..

    • DD, Did you say Igbos are Isreales, Oh my God which kind of humanbeings are these lost Igbo race who have failed to appreciate who they are really and are looking for sympathy and favour in the name of other races elsewhere, can the Igbo pls lead me into the history that links the Igbo man with Isreal. The Aworis of Lagos whom you claim to have a right of ownership because you had lived long enough to enjoy co-ownership of Lagos has dared you come along with historical facts of how the Igbo race scaled over Mid Western Nigeria to become a legitimate co-ownership of Lagos. The Igbo residents of Ghana in Accra Ghana is already claiming ancestral linkage with the Ga tribe of Accra; another Igbo charracteristic falsehood to begin tribal linkage to a people who did not know Igbo until their recent migration into Ghana. Why is the Igbo such a useless tribe such they seem to have lost self pride except making noise everywhere and commiting crime all over the world. SHAME

  25. Av neva heard nigeria deportn any country yet oda countryx r deportn uz, kiln uz, imprison uz not al d foreigners in nigeria r livn legally we alow dem tak uz 4 granted wot r dy givn uz, witout oda countryx nigeria can survive bur d problem nd d truth of d mata is our government it shown no mercy 4 itz citizen.i pray am on d high seat 1 dy i wil mak amendment 2 al diz poppycock hapn in 9ija 2dy…MAY GOG HELP NIGERIA

  26. Nigerian should stay in their country, if we have to travel at all not to some useless countries that are not worth it. Of all places Goa, it is not their fault but the fault of our selfish govt. How many South African can you find in Goa or whatever it is called, calling Nigeria cancer. no matter what they say, Indian are more fraudulent and criminally minded than Nigerian, they are only subtle about it. How many Indian live and work in Nigeria. My secondary school principal is an Indian married to a Nigerian, this was as far back as the eighties. We don’t even love ourselves, how then do we expect people from other countries to like us. What happened has nothing to with being Ibo or Yoruba.

  27. we nigerians dnt love ourselves how then can we expect love from anoda country dat worships different god? We shouldn’t discuss tribalism wen we have all tribes in every country. Their lives is at stake there too. We should stand for what is right anytime and anywhere. It’s not easy to achieve great things in life but it’s wrong to do it wrongly. What do u expect from idle citizens that have toiled in the streets of Nigeria before succeeding to go abroad when 80percents are graduate suffering like labourers. We should put our country in place before the situation will b worse than these. Everybody knows wat is right, just stick to it.

  28. This idiotic BOBO or whatever you call ur self from ur pointless comment i am yet to believe that u are a ***** person lemme tell u ******’s aint no good, you dare not compare an ***** man with a ***** fools starting from ojukwu’s father, philip emeagwali, rev fr. tansi, and so on so better shut ur f**king mouth cos u know nothing about bthe **** ppl

  29. Never heard of Goa before but from the write-up they say it is in India. It is unfortunate that due to some health problems many Nigerians have to travel to benefit from their so called medical tourism otherwise I don’t see the need to visit a place where people display such venomous dislike towards our country.
    Rather than engage them in a war of words, we should advise ourselves properly and utilize our God given brilliant people and resources to build a Nation our detractors will envy. With a little resourceful application we are known for , which is even what these lesser people hate us for; we cam make it.
    Our anger will not bring back the dead so we should rather draw inspiration from same.

    RIP to the dead.
