really, I am not familiar with Nigeria, is English the main language? in terms of language barriers I suppose most places speak English now.
Yes. We do so stop assuming things. There are 3 main Nigeria languages Yoruba, Igbo and Hausa. Everyone speaks english, it's their second language.

well, living there for half of my life, i say its safer than here. and i lived in the poorest area in my city. i knew everyone back there so if anything happened they would help you. but here, its so Every man for themselves. which is terrible. i think that makes here even more dangerous
there are dangerous parts in every country, I would not say its every man for themselves here, I don't think anyone is in the position to speak for what a whole country is like

I apologise, no need to be defensive, I do not know the language of every country , I only said they need to be secure in the language and culture, which they do need to be secure in.

I agree that some people on here are making assumptions but I am not one of them, go and argue with the people that did say that Nigerians are criminals

I doubt very much you have met everyone in the UK, nor visited every area, maybe where you are there is that kind of mentality, you are doing the same thing as the people who are saying stuff about Nigeria

Do you even syntactic English write or statistics understand? It's a homicide rate, so the population size of Nigeria is irrelevant. The murder rate in Nigeria is more than 10 times that of, for example, Tunisia.

Nigeria? Really? I can understand running away from your parents but there is no need to run away from civilization. Go to Canada or something.

if you would visit a country based on their homicide rates, you wouldn't go anywhere at all.

ok. Fair enough. I only read one article about people who worked on the oil fields. That's all. It sounded pretty horrific to me.

Nigeria isn't the UK. and will never be. Morals, and norms in the UK and Nigeria will never be the same. why can't people just accept that. the standard of living and the rate of work is different and will ALWAYS be different. what you call horrific is the only way people can earn a living.

The conditions were horrific and the exploitation is shocking to western eyes.
