Nigeria is a country located in West Africa, with a population estimated to be around 214 million people. It is known for its diverse cultures, vibrant music scene, and bustling cities. The official language spoken in Nigeria is English.

The presence of British or Irish people in Nigeria is significant due to business opportunities, education, and cultural exchange. Many British or Irish expatriates live in Nigeria for work, particularly in sectors such as oil and gas, education, or technology. They contribute to the local economy, engage in cultural exchange, and appreciate the cultural diversity, vibrant arts, and entrepreneurial spirit of Nigeria.
In the event of the most unfortunate circumstances, should an individual from England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Ireland, or any non-native origin pass away in Nigeria, Rosy International's Nigeria team is ready to assist in repatriating their remains (including ashes) back to the UK or Ireland. We can arrange collection from Lagos, Kano, Ibadan, Abuja, Port Harcourt or any other specified location in Nigeria.
Conversely, nigerians can be found throughout the UK, with larger communities in cities such as London, Birmingham, Manchester, and Glasgow.

What happens when Nigerians die in the UK or Ireland?

If your loved one is an Nigerians national and died in the UK or Ireland, it is essential to register the death with the local council to obtain the official death certificate.

Why repatriate a body/ashes back to Nigeria?

There are several reasons why you might wish to repatriate your loved one back to Nigeria, especially if they were just visiting the UK or Ireland. In such cases, we strongly advise reaching out to the travel insurance company as they typically provide financial assistance. Other reasons why you may prefer repatriating your loved one back to Afghanistan include, Nigerian culture is diverse and influenced by various ethnic groups and religious traditions. Many individuals choose to be buried in Nigeria to be laid to rest in accordance with their cultural practices, honor their ancestral ties, and be close to their families. Regardless of the reason we are here to help.

Please be aware that repatriating a body to Nigeria, usually requires the deceased to be an citizen or originate from Nigeria.
