Disturbing reports of a fresh wave of xenophobic attacks on foreign nationals by South Africans have taken the internet by storm.
Information Nigeria recalls the ongoing xenophobic attacks took a new turn after properties, including cars belonging to Nigerians and other non-South Africans, were being destroyed.
A particular video, that is currently circulating on twitter, captures the moment a man was set ablaze on the road while bystanders watched on as he struggled to quench the fire.
The main reason for the attacks is yet to be known.
