The International image of Nigeria has been seriously dented in the Indian city of Goa following reports of anti-Nigeria posters and banners that now dot parts of the city.
--A Nigerian was killed in Goa recently which led to a protest by Nigerians living in the Indian state, the state government responded by cracking down on Nigerians in the state which has led to many Nigerians in the state living in fear.
A Goa Minister has kicked off a controversy calling Nigerians in the state a cancer and demanding that they be removed. The comment is likely to add to the diplomatic war on between India and Nigeria. “Good and quality tourists will not like to visit Goa seeing such a scene. These Nigerians are like a ‘cancer’. This will affect our coastal belt badly,” Goa Art and Culture Minister Dayanand Mandrekar said.
