- A Nigerian man has sent a message to his fellow Nigerians

A Nigerian man has shared an impassioned message to his fellow countrymen. He advised them to stop fighting South Africans in their country and to realise that the country was not theirs. In a video being shared on social media, the man asks Nigerians to respect themselves and stop breaking South African laws.
The video was shared by Twitter user AdvBarryRoux and has received over 100 000 views. One of the main messages of the video was:
"South Africa doesn't belong to Nigerians, it belongs to South Africans."
The man went on to explain that he stayed in South Africa for six years before he faced any kind of xenophobia, and even then he was not directly affected because he didn't resort to violence. He says that those who feel wronged by South Africans should fight them legally.
Social media users welcomed the man's statements. Twitter user Mzwezwe8 said:
"The type of Nigerians we want in South Africa."
While LekalakalaPiet said:
"He is talking sense. They must go fight for their right in their countries. He is my hero."
"Where's there's guy, tell him he must fly back to SA. We want to give him citizenship."
"When he said “You can’t fight me in my home” I felt it."
Twitter user B069269de2eb402 said:
"This guy is telling the truth. U can’t come to my house and do as u please. Give my kids drugs sell my sister to ur bros and when I talk u fight me. There’s no way and the only people defending this mumus r staying comfortably in Sandton. Pretoria is drugs zone bcoz of Nigerians."
