    Background: LAGOS, NIGERIA

    On the final, full day of his Nigerian tour (Tuesday, 16 February), Pope John Paul was besieged by large crowds outside the Papal Nunciature (embassy) in Lagos. Inside, he met and exchanged gifts with the French, Polish, Soviet and British ambassadors, as well as diplomats from other countries and Nigerian leaders. Later he met about 300 members of Nigeria's 2,000-strong Polish community. Poles are helping to build three shipyards in Nigeria and also work in the medical and teaching professions. Some were members of Solidarity. The Pope spoke to them of martial law and urged that the rights of all nations should be respected. The last few years, he said, had been particularly difficult. Among his listeners was the Polish Ambassador Dr. Witold Jurasz. On Wednesday (17 February) the Pope left for Berlin.
