South Africans have renewed xenophobic attacks on Nigerians in their country.

Some Nigerian real estate agents in Turffontein, South Africa, were attacked by local residents who allege that they were hijacking their houses.

However, the timely intervention of the police quelled the tension in the area.

Some of the locals also alleged that the hijacked homes were either turned to brothels or were used to harbour drug lords.

One of the agents explained that their businesses were legitimate and whatever benefits they received were only a result of their hard work.

"They say we are driving nice cars, wearing expensive clothes, getting married to their women – Its by God’s grace, we work hard for it,"

This attack is coming few days after government of both countries commenced talks to stop xenophobic attacks on foreign nationals in South Africa.

  1. What do you expect in another country when in our own country we are tribalistic. In our own country, we tell our brothers and sisters to go back to their own states. We refuse to give work to our brothers and sisters b'cos they are not from our state. When we are doing these things to ourselves in our own country, we have no right to complain when we go to another country. Charity begins at home.
