Nigeria Government Cautions Citizens Living in South Africa Ahead of AFCON Clash

Nigeria Government Cautions Citizens Living in South Africa over AFCON Clash
Nigeria vs South Africa
Nigeria's government has wanted all its citizens living in South Africa to be wary of their actions as Nigeria's Super Eagles prepare to play against Bafana-Bafana of South Africa in the ongoing Cote D'Ivoire 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

The warning notice is contained in a statement released by the High Commission of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Pretoria, South Africa.

The warning notice which was titled "Advisory On Safe Conduct For Nigerians In South Africa Before, During And After 2024 Afcon Match Between Super Eagles And Bafana Bafana", was released by the High Commission Office of Nigeria following threatening messages that are being broadcast online by some South Africans ahead of the match.

Some South Africans have shared threatening social media messages, promising violence against Nigerians residing in the country should the Super Eagles defeat the South African team in the AFCON semi-final match.

The commission noted that most of the comments consist of veiled threats against "Nigerians cooking jollof rice" before the match, and "showing pepper to Nigerians if the Bafana Bafana lose to the Super Eagles", among others.

The statement partly read: "In this regard, the High Commission hereby advises the Nigerian community to be watchful of their utterances, be mindful of where they choose to watch the match, especially in public places, and refrain from engaging in loud, riotous or provocative celebrations should the Super Eagles win the match.

"Additionally, Nigerians should maintain the good conduct they are known for, and be law-abiding before, during, and after the match."
Should any provocations arise, the commission warned that they should not be reciprocated but reported to the appropriate authorities.

South Africans have been known for persistent violence against fellow African countries whenever other countries prove superior to them at any civil competition.

South Africans have, in the past, severally attacked Nigerians in the country for cheap reasons including a perception that South Ladies prefer to date and marry Nigerian guys than go with their fellow South African guys.

The Commission therefore, urged Nigerians living in South Africa to caution themselves, know where to watch the match, and how they will celebrate the expected victory of Nigeria's Super Eagles against Bafana-Bafana of South Africa on Wednesday, February 7th, 2024.
