Xenophobic attacks: Boko Haram makes Twitter trends in SA after Nigerians threaten to invite insurgents [Video]

Some angry Nigerians in South Africa have threatened to unleash Boko Haram insurgents on the country following the repeated xenophobic attacks on Nigerian nationals.

WuzupNigeria reports that the latest attacks occurred on Sunday, as a group of violent South Africans in Johannesburg took to the streets to loot and burn businesses owned by Nigerians.

In an interview, a visibly angry Nigerian man in South Africa told a TV journalist that his country would invite the insurgents to defend them as the attacks persist.

The man who alleged that the South African government is an accomplice in the continous attacks on Nigerians in the country said:

“Boko must come to this country (South Africa) because the government of this country are part of this incident.

“Our government is coming to revenge for this thing that happen today.

“We are not going to take this easy this time around.”

The threat sent South African Twittersphere abuzz as social media users in the country turned it into a sensational topic.
