[India] Five Nigerian students have been attacked by a mob in India over alleged influence of drug abuse.
The attacks were prompted by the death of a local teenager due to a drug overdose. His parents blame Nigerian students for giving him the drugs.
Aside those five, another Nigeria student was attacked inside a popular shopping mall in Noida. The attack was recorded on mobile phone cameras by other shoppers and widely circulated on social media.
The victim later lamented to journalists that while he was attacked, no one had helped or even called the police.
Alkahba Solomon, a student in Noida, told the BBC that the situation was not “favourable for Nigerian students”.
“Everybody is indoors. But the problem we are having right now is some of the landlords are telling African students to vacate from their house. These are the problems,” he said.Please Follow Us @ThePageNg
