I am writing this from Nairobi, Kenya. You can see it as warning of oppression. Being a Nigerian and staying here illegally is a crime in Kenya. Talking or walking like a Nigerian is crime in Kenya.
This is all due to some falsification and the wrongful deportation of a man called in Kenya as a controversial business man or drug baron by the name Chinedu.
This is someone who lived in this country for more than two decades and acquired properties and made transactions for all this decades in his name. How on earth in a democratic country don't you need every documentation before having accounts and properties.
The reason why I am writing this is to inform you that all Nigerians travelling through or coming to Kenya should be careful of the high level of harassment of Nigerians in Kenya. Some have even been taken to unknown prisons.
While saying all this I would like to warn all Nigerians of giving Nigerians a bad name due to all sorts of illegal businesses they get involved with.
Being a Nigerian, from my experience you are introduced to any sort of illegal businesses by the nationals of some countries or by the foreigners residing in these countries. Please refrain from this.
N.B. We, the youth of Nigerians at home and abroad, need to teach others of their good heritage and renew the image of Nigerians in every part of the world.
Feel free to add your opinion on these issues from any part of the world you living as a Nigerian.
