Xenophobic attacks against Nigerians and other black Africans have escalated in South Africa, a country liberated mainly by other Africans. On Friday, South Africans were holding a march or protest against drug, but foreigners said that protest or march was mainly xenophobic. South Africans have complained that blacks from other African countries were taking their jobs. But foreigners have dismissed those claims.

Police were trying to calm tensions in and around Atteridgeville, Pretoria, as protesters and foreigners gathered on the streets ahead of a march against illegal immigrants. Officers have fired rubber bullets in an effort to restore order and disperse the crowds, a live video said.

The Nigerian Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a warning statement last week and called on the Government to do its job and bring the killings to an end.

Nigerians in South Africa have told TheSimonAtebaNews that they were living in fear as weapons were being circulated in the open and things were degenerating.

A live video showed police stopping people and searches of their cars showed weapons, including guns. Foreigners were also carrying weapons to defend themselves.

Police fired gunshots on Friday morning to save a man who was being attacked by the mob. Somalis who spoke said they were peaceful and were not engaged in drugs.

The South African protesters were marching against drug. But the Somalis said it was a xenophobic march and not a march or protest against drug.
