Photos of two Nigerians who were reportedly mauled by South Africans have surfaced online.
Ugo Martin Ogbaje, a Facebook user, posted the pictures.
He said: “May God save us in this country, South Africa, two Nigeria guys almost murdered yesterday in Kuruman Northern Cape. If not because of Police help, their lives could have been a story by now.”
He did not indicate why the Nigerians were beaten, but comments from other users indicate that the action may be drug-related.
“As long as they continue to destroy our kids and country with drugs we will destroy them as well,” a commentator from South Africa said.
“That is where you are wrong…..we don’t hate them we hate what they are doing. N how long doea your government take to act on those ?? N what illegal acts are you talking about Timothy? We don’t have reasons to hate people for nothing,” another user posted
Another user who said the matter is not about racism said “Thre is no Racist in ths mattr … Protecting our Kids nd their Future is important … U guys knw how dangerous Those stuff is yet ur selling them to school kids …. Now Thats Heartless ..”
