A Nigerian man living in Minneapolis, Minnesota, has said he has had a share of injustice in the United States where he said he was charged for a crime he did not commit.
The man identified as Mac Eze said he was arrested and handcuffed by police, charged to court but he was able to prove his case.
Speaking with Legit TV, he said despite what he faced in the United States, he prefers the North American country to Nigeria.
He said: "Nigeria, we are still living in the stone age, I've also experienced police brutality in Nigeria. So you can't compare Nigeria to United States. Why I would say US is a little bit better than Nigeria is because this (racism) is systematic, they don't show it openly, it's systematic.
"There are just few percentage of people who are racists that are in government, that are in government parastatals."
According to him, Nigeria is a dream killer, but a hardworking person who is educated in America can achieve his dreams.
