They have all the opportunities to work legitimately, but fraud and crime is engraved on their forehead.....almost naturally!

Same kind of people we read, that produce fake teething powder for new born babies under 6 months old, sending many innocent newborns to their untimely death!

They turn worn out and old tires to brand new ones in their shops under 3 hours and sell it back to unsuspecting public as tokunbo tires!!! shocked
Causing many deaths on our roads by so doing!!

Same people that were rejoicing on the death of one of the greatest women to ever come out of Nigeria (Mrs Dora Akunyili!) cos she was a pain in their dirty as$!!

Anything and everything is money to them, even when innocent lives are in danger.
Bastards.

Oluromantic:

This is why going abroad without proper documentation is not advisable. Italy is already one of the countries in the EU that struggles to provide employment for its citizens, so foreigners, especially those who don't have legal status are in a tough spot to find employment. Many have to resort to illicit activities like drug dealing, prostitution, and hawking while facing the risk of deportation.

Imaging fleeing Nigeria just to go and sell hand bags on the streets of Europe while you are trying to avoid authorities. It's not dignifying!
