About Us

Nigerian Reporter is your source of news from Nigeria and Africa in real time: breaking news, politics, travel, entertainment, fashion, business, and sports. Bringing you Nigerian stories from Nigeria and around the globe.

Our mission is to bridge the gap between Nigerians and Africans on the continent and those in the diaspora, offering fresh perspectives on news that affects all of us. The news site was born in late 2015, in Rhode Island, USA, the smallest state in the union, demonstrating how far the reach Nigerians have.

We are always searching for people that are proud of their African heritage, or are involved in their local African communities, to contribute articles and news stories to our site. In this ever changing digital age, citizen journalists are now becoming the first respondents to events so send us your news. If you want to submit an opinion piece, analysis, video, or hard news please email nigerianreporter1@gmail.com. The views expressed in our political op-ed section are solely the opinions of the writers. The veracity of any claims made are the responsibility of the author not Nigerian Reporter.

If you are interested in speaking with us in any other capacity please contact us or send an email directly to nigerianreporter1@gmail.com and we’ll be in touch.


Nigerian Reporter strives to publish accurate information at all times. Minor errors of spelling, punctuation, and the like will be corrected on our website without notice. When we correct significant errors of fact or substance, we will note the correction within the body of the article. If you think Nigerian Reporter has published something in error please email us at nigerianreporter1@gmail.com.
