String causes geocode to throw error

running this line of code

geocode(location="Somewhere in Nigeria Winning",source="dsk", output="more")

throws this error

Error in vapply(gc$results[[1]]$address_components, function(x) x[[nameToGrab]],  : values must be length 1, but FUN(X[[1]]) result is length 0

can someone shed some light on why this may be happening and what i can do to fix it? i know this seems like an odd question however this string showed up in a set of data to prune and seems to be breaking geocode.
