  • Race/nationality

    This is not a comment about whether one's culture and/or upbringing make one more or less likely to behave in a certain way, but just to clarify some terms, 'race' and 'nationality' are not the same. Whatever one thinks about Nigeria, Nigerian people's RACE is not 'Nigerian', it is 'Afro-Caribbean.' Nigerian is their NATIONALITY.

  • Re: race nothing to do with it?

    Cynical Cynthia, could you give us a clue which firm?

  • Race and Deportation

    Actually a Nigerian is an African and not an Afro-Caribbean. Secondly, re the comment requiring that she be deported post her prison sentence, surely the fact of her Nigerian name does not preclude her from being a British citizen.

    Dr Martin Luther King Jr's dream that one day people of colour will be judged not on the colour of their skin but on the content of their character is one I hold dear. As an Afro-Canadian /American with limited exposure to Nigerians I query whether, as one reader commented, her conduct was due to her being Nigerian. Does she come from a family and/or culture where appropriating or taking whatever one desires is an admirable quality? Couldn't it be that she is both Nigerian and British?

    As a city lawyer with a Nigerian origin I could only sigh when I read all the comments below. I am infuriated and yet again embarrassed that some IDIOT has given the world another reason to associate Nigerians with fraud. Will this never end?

    Not all Nigerians are fraudulent and please let's get something clear – fraud, or whatever criminal behaviour, is most certainly not our culture! Indeed there have been a plethora of cases about greedy, lazy, inconsequential Nigerians who just want to get rich quick without doing the hard work and for that reason I don't blame the illiterates who think this behaviour is our way of life.

    The majority simply know right from wrong but the minority, who don't know or choose not to behave with decorum, always get the spotlight!

  • Titi has been involved in more fraud

    The girl is a professional fraudster with a decieving angelic face, and pretentious sophisticated and well mannered behaviour!

    ALL I CAN SAY IS THAT SHE'S A SOPHISTICATED, SMART WHITE-COLLAR CRIMINAL!

    I think that it is this sort of delinguent behaviour that causes other youngsters to be given a very bad name, "What the hell was she thinking?" I wish that i had her opportunity to work at such a reputable firm in the UK.
