The general parlance that Nigerians do not dull when it comes to anything they do has come to play yet again as the country has set another ignominious record as the country with the highest number of criminals in the United Kingdom, amongst other African countries.
Nigeria ranks among countries with highest number of criminals in the UK
The Uk Home Office has ranked Nigeria as the African country with the highest number of criminals in the UK.
In a new report released by the UK Home Office, out of a total number of 106, 000 registered Nigerians living in Britain, 832 of them are confirmed as criminals who have been recorded as offenders. They have been indicted for various criminal endeavours like murder, rape, drug trafficking, stealing, credit card fraud or love and marriage scams.
Other African countries with high number of criminals include Somalia which has 558 criminals out of its 45,000 citizens while Zimbabwe has 482 bad guys from a population of 50,000. Algeria has the least number of citizens living in the UK with just 9,000 but they have 305 criminals.
But on the world scale, Jamaica tops the rating with 1,026 notorious citizens out of only 47,000 people living in the country.
