People born in Nigeria are the biggest group of black people by place of birth after those born in England. There are nearly 115,000 Nigerian-born Londoners, making them easily the largest African-born group, ahead of Somalis and Ghanaians. There are around 25,000 more Nigerian-born Londoners than Jamaican-born Londoners – the second largest black group by place of birth who were born outside England.
Southwark has the largest number of Nigerian-born people, followed by Greenwich and Lewisham. They are also the biggest non-English born group in Barking and Dagenham.
