In the larger cities, such as Lagos and the capital, Abuja, Nigerian women are much more likely to be highly educated and much more in tune with the broader world, but many Nigerian ladies living in more rural areas are likely to much less educated and in tune with modern western culture.
In the South Nigerian women are a bit more liberated and with a massive divorce rate in the country you'll find that the vast majority of single Nigerian women are very interested in becoming Mrs. Most Nigerian brides will usually be pretty conservative by the standards of the United States and Europe and they will also usually expect that you fulfill the traditional male role.
Religion is a major issue that causes enormous problems in Nigeria, because about slightly over half the country is Muslim, about 50.2% according to best estimates, and nearly all of the other half of the country are Christians, although there are still a small number of Nigerians who practice one of several pre-colonial native religions.
The nearly even split between Christian and Muslims has led to serious violence, approaching the level of civil war in some areas, however it is difficult to know how much religion really comes into play when Nigerian girls are looking to date foreign men.
“If a person claims to be very religious and they use words like ‘God-fearing’ in their profile, there’s a huge probability it’s fraud,” Wade said.
