    Y? There must be a reason….your case must not be difference,cos thes is done to some Nigerians, majority has has given Nigeria a bad name..If it were to b in Nigeria airport and we have some people from another countries that always come here do do crime, we will still check them well..buh because the leaders here are also corrupt nothing can be done.So leave SA with their policy.

      To be objective, Omojuwa baited them. If you said that to a Nigerian immigration man, there is not way you will enter this Nigeria at all.

      Plus I do not believe this is any different from any other country i have travelled to.
      I have been held for one hour or more several times in the USA, way before trump, I guess running their checks and when they were done they asked me to go.

      In December, I travelled to SA, i had all the papers they required and so they asked no questions, they detained a few people yes but they did not have proof of accommodation. Tell me how is this different from the UK or anywhere else.

      I do not like what is going on in SA, i have some choice words for that but this is not the issue, the issue is Omojuwa if he had such strong objections should have sat at home finish, that would have been him proving a better point.

      Did you read the exchange between him and the officials?
      Does it look like it’s mere protocol and policy speaking when they say ‘we’ll teach you respect?”

    Since Nigeria and South Africa are africa’s two biggest giants, it would be nice if they learned to get along….

    Even tho nigerians are thieves cunts and south africans are muderous Scums.

    But lets pray for unity for 1 Africa.

    The real issue is South Africa is among the G20. Its the Most industrialised country in Africa because white people stayed back to help them out. They can tolerate Europeans and Americans but not other Africans who come to share in their jobs and opportunities. Solution? Nigerian govt develop your economy. Provide basic amenities and Nigerians will be respected everywhere they go; any other solution is artificial.
