NGO says 400 Nigerians stuck in Russia | BellaNaija

A Russian NGO has revealed that several Nigerians who went to see the World Cup are stuck in Russia after they were scammed into buying fake tickets home.

200 Nigerians are said to be stuck in the capital city Moscow, and 60 reportedly spent the night in front of the Nigerian embassy.

The embassy has promised to accommodate them for two days, but no plans have been announced for when that time has elapsed.

The Russian NGO “Alternative” is currently their only help.

    These are group of Nigerians that erroneously believe that living in Europe and/ or the Americas is a walk in the park.
    No matter what you tell them, they never believe you.

    World cup attendance was not by force. How did they buy these tickets. They must have gone through a shady means else why not specify the name of the ticketing company or platform.

    No matter how hard some Africans work to change our narrative there are many who just want us to be stereotyped. See them sleeping on the streets and as usual the ambassador isn’t there. While we complain of bad governance we also contribute to the problem. Over and out.

    The fact is that they were scammed. You all just want to blame them even if as at this point there is no prove that they are to be blamed.

    So you went for world cup and don’t have enough funds to come back home ??? Even if truly you got scammed with your return ticket…why leave your country without enough money in hand in case of the UNKNOWN???

    With the way the world is….anything can happen in any of these countries. If you don’t have enough funds for an emergency private jet escape…better stay home.

    Misplaced priorities.

    Stupid, shallow people. Just to go snap pictures and put it on social media for people who don’t even know they exist. They call themselves ‘giant of Africa’, the world call them ‘shame of Africa’. Awon dindinrin gbogbo.

    But they’re at the Nigerian embassy. Don’t most people who want to stay just go into hiding?
