South Africans who are outraged over the illegal and illicit activities of Nigerians in South Africa plan an attack against Nigerians.
The video which shows a crowd of South Africans outside the Nigeria Consulate in South Africa addresses the Nigerian representative and the media decry the force prostitution many young South African girls have been forced into by Nigerians.
One could sense the anger in the faces of the angry mob. In recent years the illegal and illicit activities of Nigerians living in South Africa have rob off on the life of the innocent Nigeria Nationals who are law-abiding. Many Nigerians have lost their life following xenophobia attacks against Nigerians.
With the growing fear, it would be of Nigeria’s best interest if this recent video is not taking just as a ‘courtesy call’ because as many left that place, they already started working out a plan to attack Nigerians.
The government of Nigeria must call it’s citizens to order, while also finding ways to work with the South Africa government to ensure that the lives of innocent Nigerians are protected from xenophobia attacks.
The question that largely remains unanswered is why always Nigerians. Across the Africa continent, there is intense growing hate against Nigerians. About a month ago, we saw how shops of Nigeria traders we’re destroyed in Accra Ghana, and also how a building belonging to the Nigerian consulate in Ghana was bulldozed down.
There have been large complain in South Africa by South Africans that Nigerians have formed the bedrock of crimes in South Africa, ranging from sells of illicit drugs, gang war, women trafficking, Prostitution just to mention a few.
