Launched in May 2012, Nigerian Watch, a free monthly newspaper for the Nigerian community in the UK, will be published twice a month as of 31 January.

Currently Nigerian Watch is published the last Friday of every month delivering exclusive news to the Nigerian diaspora in the UK. Over time, the paper became so popular that its management decided to double its print run (50,000). The paper will continue to be distributed at numerous outlets across the UK.
