Image captured of an attempt to rob a tourist in Magalluf.

The Guardia Civil have arrested a Nigerian woman for attacking two tourists and two agents with a broken bottle in Magalluf. The woman attempted to thrust the bottle into the side of one of the officers but this resulted in only slight injury because the bottle was impeded by the officer's pistol and handcuffs.

The incident occurred at around 5am on Thursday by the beach in Magalluf. The Nigerian woman, ostensibly plying a trade as a prostitute, offered drugs to two young tourists. When they declined the offer, she began to threaten them, grabbed a beer bottle and smashed it with the intention of attacking them.

A Guardia patrol was passing at the time and officers went to the assistance of the two tourists. Rather than calming down when the Guardia appeared, the woman became more aggressive. It was then that she attacked the one officer with the bottle. The other officer had avoided her attack and, despite being elbowed by the woman, was able to shackle her.

The woman was taken to the Guardia station where the two tourists denounced her, while the attack on the officer led to a charge of attempted murder.

There is no doubt there ia a problem here with Nigerian crime gangs. This had been allowed to go on for years, I have my view why, but will keep it to myself. These Nigerian gangs dont exist in places like Moscow/Hong Kong as they would be shot or have their limbs chopped off by local Mafia/triads. In London their are very few of these gangs as the eastern european gangs have muscled them out. (So the've focussed on financial/ebay scams instead). That is why they have thrived in Mallorca, there are few other crime gangs competing and authorities turn a blind eye. Nigerians therefore are saying, lets go to Mallorca its easy pickings and low risk!

Lennart, I agree, but how many nationals from another country beginning with N make a living here pimping, selling drugs and illegal goods ?. Food for thought ? Your country as well as other scandinavian ones, are starting to experience the same problem as Magaluf but on a larger scale. For how long can ALL law abiding citizens put up with it, especially when our taxes subsidize the health care and education of these people.

Lennart, unfortunately President Buhari of Nigeria disagrees with you. I suggest you read the interview with him by the Daily Telegraph 5 Feb this year. He says far to many Nigerians commit crime abroad and they deserve their bad reputation. He also says that far less Nigerians should seek asylum abroad. Hey, but you know better than their president.

Lennart Bjolgerud is completely wrong. These Nigerian prostitutes have been illegally operating in magalluf for several years.Todate very little has been effective in arresting and deporting these criminals. Very little has been achieved in finding and deporting the PIMPS operating the prostitutes.Magalluf has become a dangerous place, because of these Nigerian criminals. Muggings of "Clients " is common place. How long will it be before there is a murder. Magalluf is a mess, because of its crime and dangerous balcony Hotels.

Crime is conducted by individuals, not by nations. The comments in this field about contributions of Nigerians are insensitive and uninformed. I am not saying that the Nigerian community is not troubled by criminals but equally, the majority of Nigerians living in the Baleares probably just want to live normal life and does not need additional stigmatisation.

Bloody nightmare after 11.00. So obvious yet nothing is done. Spoils what they are trying to do in Magaluf.

Here we go again, another day, another Nigerian breaking the law. 2 out of 10 of the stories on this site, involve Nigerians partaking in criminal activity. I dont really need to say anymore. I will let other people judge whether Nigerians are adding any value to Mallorcan life!
