“The government of India should ban them. They should be probed. It should be checked whether many of them are here to study or for picnics or to sell drugs,” said Naik.

According to the senior Congress leader, Nigerian students, in the pretext of studying are staying here and engaging in illegal activities.  Calling them as “negroes”, he remarked that the Nigerians are creating “problems” in Goa and everywhere in the country. Naik has demanded that documents of these students must be carefully screened and checked for incongruence.

Only a few days back, the Chief Minister of Goa, Laxmikant Parsekar had objected to the lifestyle of Nigerians in Goa as “offending to the Goans.” Tourism minister for the State, Dilip Parulekar had reverberated the same when he accused the Nigerians of selling drugs.

Naik’s comments come a few weeks after the Delhi High Court expressed anguish over the attack on Masonda Ketada Oliver, an African national, who was beaten to death in Delhi’s Vasant Kunj. Following the same, about seven Africans were allegedly targeted in three separate incidents in Delhi’s Chhatarpur neighbourhood.

“There is a let up from crime against women. Now Delhi is becoming racist. There have been attacks on African nationals. We do not know what is happening in the city,” a bench of justices BD Ahmed and RK Gauba observed in the above series of incidents.
