The South African government have publicly repudiated reports reaching them that South African citizens are carrying out Xenophobic attacks on Nigerians residing with them for no reason.

Speaking to the media briefly after a meeting with Onyeama, Bobby Monroe who is South Africa’s High Commissioner to Nigeria mentioned that the latest attacks on Nigerians were not ”xenophobic” in nature but are fairly mere ‘sporadic acts of violence’ by criminals.

Bobby Monroe made this known to the public when he met with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Nigeria, Onyeama Geoffrey, in FCT earlier today. Bobby Monroe also earlier stated that the businesses belonging to other South Africans were also affected in the violence acts that erupted yesterday.
