A NIGERIAN noble will attend a celebration of the country's nationals living in Oxford on Saturday.

The 17th Emir of Borgu, a Nigerian kingdom, Alhaji Mohammed Haliru Dantoro IV, will speak at the 58th Nigerian independence and cultural day celebration at 2pm at Oxford Spires Academy.

The Emir met Colin Cook, Lord Mayor of Oxford, at the Town Hall alongside members of the county's Nigerian community earlier this year.
