- An abroad-based Nigerian man has taken to social media to speak on the xenophobic attacks going on in South Africa
- According to him, South Africa belongs to South Africans, thus Nigerians should go back home and make the country better
- The unidentified man went on to state that Nigerians shouldn't expect to be treated equally in a country that isn't theirs
Following the xenophobic attacks on Nigerians living in South Africa, many people have taken to social media to condemn the killings, lootings and attacks on Nigerians by disgruntled South Africans.
While many people are calling on the government to intervene, an abroad-based Nigerian seems to believe another solution will be much more effective.
In a video currently trending on social media, the unidentified man who revealed he used to live in South Africa, advised Nigerians to go back home and focus on making the country better.
According to him, it is rather impossible for Nigerians living in South Africa to expect equal treatment or fight for equal rights in a country that isn't theirs.
Although he admitted that the killings were wrong, he stated that South Africa belongs to South Africans and there are just too many Nigerians living in the country.
He advised that rather that remain in the country fighting for their rights to live there, they should all move back home and channel that energy towards making Nigeria a better place.
The man also stated that Nigerians doing illegal businesses in the country are part of the reasons for the killings as they often live flamboyant lifestyles and in unapologetic ways that in a way, angers South Africans.
