Hi! Now I understand about the quality of petrol!!!!! I think what others have mentioned give the fuel system a good flush, maybe consider as mentioned changing the fuel filter. If possible give the car a very long run as short runs will not get the engine, catalytic converters up to temperature were they burn off all of the impurities. Remember it takes a good 35-45 mins of driving for these temperatures to be reached!!!!!! You may want to check the air intake and MAF in case you have a dust issue?????
Have to say your very brave to take a 6 series to Nigeria, I think i would have left it somewhere garaged and used something else in country! But I suppose because it is left hand drive you wanted to get as much out of the car as possible!!!!!!

Always said I would go back to a 6 series
