Led by a sadistic warlord Obsandjo, the ‘Nigerians’ are rendered as outlandishly horrendous, due to their formation of a variety of scams, including “illegal arms trade, interspecies prostitution, and the ‘cat food scam’ where tines of cat food are sold to the aliens as a delicacy [for] exorbitant prices” (Jansen van Veuren, 2012).
