A Nigerian migrant in Germany says he is being stopped by Police 'on every corner'

Germans are worried about the number of asylum seekers who have been allowed into the country following incidents of sexual assaults and muggings in Cologne New Year's Eve and at the city's ongoing annual festival which were mostly blamed on migrants who "looked like they were from north Africa" .
 
22-year-old Nigerian Fidelis is among more than a million migrants who arrived in Germany in 2015. According to BBC, he fled fighting in Libya and travelled to Italy before making his way to Germany nine months ago.
 

Fidelis told the BBC Newsbeat that he was stopped "on every corner" on the opening night of Cologne's annual carnival.
"I am very worried. Police have been checking my papers. They've asked me Where are you from? Are you from Africa? Can I see you papers? I'm very embarrassed"

There were protests all over Cologne in January and German Chancellor Angela Merkel made it easier to make asylum seekers who commit crimes leave the country. Thirty-five suspects are being investigated over the attacks with two men - a Tunisian and a Moroccan - charged.

Fideleis who worked at a bar in Libya, says he loves living in Germany but when he heard what happened on New Year's Eve - he knew people would treat him differently.
"I was praying to my god. I watched it on the TV station. It was like something I couldn't expect was happening by some people who I don't know. I don't know who these people are."

He thinks people should be more open minded.

"Africans are all different. You see white [people] in Africa you see black [people]. People need to see this"

Racial profiling?

Gabriel E.O. Okhams said...

Sweet sweet home, people no where can be like home unless God leads one out of home Himself, yet you will still be ill-treated but hen you will be able to conquer at the end, just like Isaac in the face of the people of the land of the Canaanites, who had to dig well for seven times before he could get water to use (Genesis 26:1-35) and its only God that blesses when He leads you there, else you will always be a fugitive.
We therefore need God.

Welcome to the West my friend.....Africans unfortunately do not know this and instead all rhey do is glorify everything white...designer this from oyibo, rubbish noodles if no nutritional value from oyibo, tv programs of oyibo, fake accent of oyibo, every travel to oyibo land, all the images of your God oyibo and yet oyibo hate you the black man...When will the black man especially our leaders understand that our God and power and strength is in our culture and identity...If we invest all our energy and resources in our culture and motherland, there will be no reason for any African wanting to slave or work in oyibo land let alone live....
