It all started after local kids were chased away by Nigerians for playing football in the square across from the their house.
These kids returned accompanied by a dozen people, including relatives and residents in the area, armed with clubs and bottles containing flammable liquid. In a few seconds the attackers moved from threats to blows. When the three Nigerians ran & barricaded themselves in a bathroom, the group broke through the front door and set the building on fire. The three men managed to escape through the bathroom window.
The three “victims”- a 44 year old, a 37 year-old and a 27 year old – were taken to the General Hospital & treated for smoke inhalation.
