List of wanted Nigerians

Why will the FBI demand publicly for the names of only 6 Nigerians when there are 9her 16 Russians, 20 Chinese and more than 35 people of Arabic descent in the 79 man wanted list.

For those who may be wondering, here is a list of the wanted Nigerians. Alex Afolabi Ogunshakin, Felix Osilama Okpoh, Abiola Ayorinde Kayode, Michael Olorunyomi, Nnamdi Orson Benson and Richard Izuchukwu Uzuh.

The Nigerian community will however not be having it cool and keep demanding the reason for publicly putting the name Nigeria on their wanted list when in reality, it wasn’t only Nigerians that committed the crime.

@Queenpreshiii: “These people go around condemning Nigeria. Check it out and you will see 79 of criminals which are 16 Russians, 20 Chinese ,6 NIGERIANS and 37 arabic men.
So @FBI why are you making Nigeria the subject of criticism? Is it because of 6 bad eggs? ”

@Oladele4you: “So annoying why no mention the Chinese or the Russians,but the feel more comfortable because the Nigerians are black. Racism can’t leave the American.”


@EtniesJags: “You used the name ‘Nigerian’ as click bait, when there are other nationalities here. All Nigerians are not scammers, this type of post encourages the stereotypes that makes other countries keep profiling us as scammers. Not all black people are thugs, not all Nigerians are frauds”

@temmiloluwa_: “Everyone is talking about “just 6 Nigerians”,it’s even worse
Take time to go through the list&you’ll realise the 6 are probably the “least criminals” on that list. By all means,arrest & prosecute them,but don’t make Nigeria the poster child for fraud. That narrative needs to stop”
