      You need to get familiar with your own people. Nigerians have been in Bangladesh since the 1980s. I remember there was an Igbo guy who played professional soccer in Bangladesh in the 80s only I could not remember his name. I visited Dhaka in the early 80s and there were some Nigerians that were living there but majority of them were Igbo guys and they were very good guys. Some of them were students but just like you I was also surprised when I got to know that there were Nigerians living in there because Bangladesh was and still is a very poor country.
