Nigeria’s scrabble team has been denied a visa and will therefore not be present at the MSI World scrabble Championships.
Nigeria is ranked the world number one scrabble nation after Wellington Jighere won the championships for team Nigeria in November 2015.
This year’s event is taking place in France and Nigeria will not be present to defend her title.
