Nonetheless, the household name for the forbidden fruits ate by Nigerians in the diaspora is "crime". Although crime is a part of every living activity but it is quite worrisome when the perpetrator of such act is an outsider - a native of other land/nation. Forms of such frowned-at behaviour are;
- cyber crime
- drug sales and trafficking
- prostitution (male and female)
- 491 (Advanced form of 419- fraudster)
- sales of human organs (kidney/liver)
