This Nigerian man got more than what he bargained from these ticket inspectors


A Nigerian man who allegedly refused to show his identification papers to ticket inspectors on a Deutsche Bahn German train was given a treatment he would never forget in his life as he was savagely brutalized and thrown off the plane.

The incident which was captured on video, saw the Nigerian man being dragged out of the train by the inspectors after he reportedly refused to provide his ID and pay a fine for not having a ticket.

In the video, the Nigerian could be seen vehemently clinging on metal handrails, as the two inspectors in uniform battled to get him out of the suburban S-Bahn train which was heading to the Munich city center from the airport.

While one of the inspectors tried to remove the man’s hands from the handrails, the other one is seen grabbing the man’s neck as he leans back towards the doors.

As the scene unfolds, a woman filming the struggle is heard telling the inspectors:

“It’s absolutely not okay what you’re doing; that guy didn’t do anything to you. You should be ashamed of yourself, this is racism what you’re doing.

Why are you doing this? He paid for his ticket.”

As the woman continues filming the incident, someone tried in vain to stop her but she insisted on capturing the disgraceful scene.

The two ticket inspectors eventually managed to get the man said to be 48-year-old, out on the platform and bring him to the ground, pressing his face against the asphalt, as the woman yells that the men in uniform were doing it 'because he’s black.'

The man was reportedly removed from the train at Leuchtenbergring station. He, however, appeared to have no valid ticket as the inspectors came up to him during the check.

They then asked him to show an ID card and pay a $68 fine for not having the correct ticket but the man who was apparently short on cash told the inspectors that all he had was for his food.

The inspectors were said to have collected the €9, saying he still owed the rest and insisted he must pay up the remainder of the fine.

Deutsche Bahn, the company operating trains in Germany commenting on the incident later, said it was unusual to receive only partial payments. The company also stated that the man was acting aggressively and refused to leave the carriage, prompting the inspectors to apply physical force.
