Yesterday, we posted the news between Nigeria students and Indian which erupted as a results of a football match.

The incident happened  on Saturday, as a result of a fracas , during a football match between Afican and Indian Students.

The Nigerian mission immediately took custody of 86 Nigerian students, invited the representatives of the Indian govt, got their commitment to ensure safety of the students who then returned back to campus on Sunday .

Calm has returned to the campus. A few injuries were recorded and further investigations are ongoing.


The Nigerian mission had made it clear that the Indian authorities would be held responsible if anything happens to any of the students.


There is already a written commitment by the Indian Authorities to protect our students. Any student feeling threatened should pls report to the Nigerian mission in Delhi immediately.
