Possible xenophobia averted after a Nigerian man was accused on Twitter of killing a South African woman but it turns out the suspect is from SA (video)

 

A video was shared online of a South African woman laying on the floor, bleeding, and it was claimed that a Nigerian man was responsible for her condition. However, the record was set straight, thereby averting what could easily have spiralled into more xenophobic attacks.

The Twitter user who shared the videos wrote: “A South African sister has allegedly been beaten by Nigerian man in Sandton Skye. On her way to hospital she passed on due to severe head injuries. Rest peacefully Sister.”

But Twitter users quickly called out the Twitter user for spreading false reports. They revealed the woman isn’t dead as claimed.
