Locals Attack Nigerian Student In Hyderabad

Two local youths have been arrested for allegedly assaulting a Nigerian student this week even as police on Saturday (February 6) asserted that the allegation that the foreigner was “racially abused” has not been established. Expressing solidarity with the Nigerian student and seeking justice for a Tanzanian girl student (who was allegedly attacked in Bengaluru), a group of around 70 students under the banner of African Students Association and other organisations held a peaceful protest at Indira Park here, holding banners demanding “to stop discrimination and humiliation of African students” in Indian cities. “Two local youths-Shoaib Ali and Faizal Ali have been arrested following the complaint lodged by the Nigerian student. However, with regard to the allegation that the local youths passed racial comments against the Nigerian student has not been established,” Deputy Commissioner of Police (West Zone) A Venkateshwera Rao told PTI. The DCP said it was a road-side brawl between the Nigerian student Orolabe Ibidola and local youths on Thursday night after the Nigerian student “put” his face inside the window of a woman’s car when she was in conversation with the locals for an address. “The local youths said that after the lady raised objection then only they asked the Nigerian student on why he was interfering,” the DCP said quoting the local youths.
