In a statement issued by the spokesperson, Nigeria ministry of foreign affairs, Ferdinand Nwonye states that Nigeria monitors the xenophobic attack on foreigners in South Africa through the Nigerian High Commission in Pretoria.

Three Nigerians were killed on Monday during an attack on foreigners in South Africa.

One of the people killed was burnt alive.

The attack on foreigners started on Sunday morning, where angry mobs stormed foreign businesses and Loot.

The attacks are believed to have been carried out by the Zulu hostel dwellers.

One of the Nigerian businesses affected was a Nigerian car dealer, whereby his companies were set ablaze.

The attack spread across the second day before the security operatives got involved, dispersing the angry Mob.

Meanwhile, South African Economic Freedom Fighters, EFF, in a statement, condemned the attack.

He said whether you are from South Africa or Zimbabwe, this is your home. He, therefore, calls for an end to self-hate. He said, Africa, we are one, Nigerians are our brothers.
