Five Nigerians relocated
Five of the 90 Nigerian students who were staying at Casa Grande Hotel in St Philip have been relocated to another local facility because of concerns about their safety.
A top official close to the now terminated Delta State Youth Empowerment Programme for Barbados, said the five – who recently went to the media accusing fellow students of orchestrating complaints – were taken to another hotel to protect them from some of the other Nigerians who were allegedly intimidating and even beating them.
The source told Barbados TODAY that accusations of theft had also been made against one of the five and police are now investigating the alleged theft of US$800. The Nigerian government is currently finalizing plans to get all the students back home.
