Indians brutalize Nigerian students, charge them with murder after boy dies of self drug overdose (PHOTOS, VIDEO)

An Indian boy was missing in Greater Noida, residents barge into homes of Nigerians students accusing them of cannibalism. They insisted the Nigerians must have eaten the boy and arrested them. Boy comes back after self drug overdose. Yet the Nigerians were not released. Boy became sick from the drugs, was taken to the hospital and dies at the hospital. Only for the Nigerians to be charged with murder. 

In this video, you'll see locals brutalizing Nigerians after the boy's death. Several Nigerian students have been in hiding since yesterday, many of them have no idea what is going on or why the whole town is beating them.

In a bizarre incident of racial discrimination, the residents of the NSG Black Cat Enclave in Greater Noida, searched the fridge of five Nigerian students on suspicions of cannibalism. This was after a boy, who was a resident of the enclave, went missing, and died in a hospital later.

The suspicions were unproven and the missing boy Manish Khari seemed to have died from some sort of drug overdose.

Samuel Jack, the president of the Association of African Students in India told The Telegraph, "They accused them of being cannibals. That is the kind of ignorance against black people."

The incident took place after Khari went missing on Friday, and someone expressed their suspicion on the Nigerian students having eaten him up.

The newspaper reports that residents of the enclave barged into their house to look for Khari's remains inside their refrigerator.

While the incident gets more and more bizarre, this must have been severely humiliating for the students. reports that despite the fact that the boy came back and seems to have died of a drug overdose, the parents insisted that an FIR be registered against the five students because the Khari had allegedly said he was kidnapped by a "dark-skinned" person who made him smell something, after which he fainted.

Khari's family has insisted that the police file murder charges against the Nigerian students.

A protest took place near the Kasna police station.

The Times of India reported a student as saying, "We feel that the FIR was registered against Nigerian students due to bias. The police should investigate the matter and then take action. We protest against this motivated action."

African students in India are often at the receiving end of racial discrimination and are looked at with suspicion. But perhaps this incident, where the students were accused of giving drugs to another student and then of cannibalism, is an indication that there is a need for sensitising citizens to other cultures and races.

The students of the African community are understandably disheartened. Najib Hamisu Umar told, "I have lived in Russia and Germany but never been through such trauma. The day I leave India, I shall never come back."

  1. What about showing some Indians in Africa how Africans can love and how they can hate. If human rights groups and governments are quite about these incidents then people should solve the problems themselves. If a few Indians are sampled with tire-necklace, petrol and a matchstick on a few Africa streets, one is sure to achieve mutual understanding of how things work. As long as our government and human rights groups watch these incidents of violence against Africans with little or no concern, people will continue to suffer until anarchy breaks out.
