william, nigerian refugee in brazil.

William came to Brazil on a visa during the World Cup. Escaping tribal violence and terrorist attacks in his native Nigeria, he took advantage of lax visa requirements during the mega-event to come to Brazil as a tourist and stay as a refugee. He will go back, he says, once he has spoken with his mother – who disappeared after an inner-village conflict – and has enough money to relocate her to a safer place.
