Group to mark Nigerian independence

The Nigerian Association of Greater Toledo will mark the 45th anniversary of Nigeria's independence from Britain with a gala and cultural extravaganza at 5:30 p.m. today in the Jefferson Ballroom of Hotel Seagate, 141 North Summit St.

Nigerians living in the Toledo area formed the association about two years ago to promote the culture of the west African nation. Nigeria became independent Oct. 1, 1960.
