A Nigerian man who was one of the first batch of returnees from South Africa following the recent xenophobic attacks, has revealed how Nigerians were killed in the presence of police officers.
The returnee Nigerian, Jude Anthony, who said he lived in South Africa for seven years, accused the authorities of doing nothing while South Africans attacked and killed foreigners.
Anthony, shared his horrific experiences on video on arrival at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos on Wednesday, September 11.
“The experience has been terrible. I have been in South African for seven years; I witnessed the bestiality of humanity in South Africa. I have seen violence on blacks on blacks; I will not blame the people that much because what is happening in South Africa is coordinated.
Xenophobia is a policy driven right from the era of President Jacob Zuma or even the regime preceding Zuma and it is driven by the South African police.
In the presence of the police, people are being slaughtered like chicken and there is no outrage from the west; the west is not condemning it, America is not condemning it because they see it as black on black violence. Which is very wrong; violence is wrong, criminality is wrong.”
