No expulsions of Nigerians took place

A hundred African Facebook pages posted information about “51 Congolese were expelled from France” on March 1 after incidents two days earlier in Paris, on the sidelines of a concert by Congolese star singer Fally Ipupa. (Image: Paris, Gare de Lyon before fire).

This is false: no case of eviction has been recorded by the Congolese authorities, no plane from France landed in Kinshasa on Sunday and the photos accompanying these claims date back several years.
