The latest xenophobic attacks on Nigerians and their businesses in South Africa have spurred Nigerians on social media to call for the boycott of South African products and businesses in Nigeria.

The attack, which occurred on Sunday, saw a group of violent South Africans in Johannesburg looting and burning businesses owned by Nigerians.

Another viral video also showed a mob of South Africans in their large numbers setting a man suspected to be a Nigerian ablaze on the street of South Africa.

The latest attack has sent the Twittersphere into hysteria prompting a lot of Nigerians on social media to call for the boycott of South African-owned business in Nigeria like MTN, Shoprite, Protea Hotel and DSTV among others to force the South African government to stop the killings.

WuzupNigeria reported earlier that popular OAP Daddy Freeze had declared that he would be boycotting South African products, saying he will not enrich a country that treats his people like animals.
