A South Africa born Nigerian, Mr Xolane Ndhlovu, has advised Nigerians living in South Africa to stay away from any form of illegality.
Ndhlovu said in a statement issued on Thursday in Lagos that staying away from illegality was one of the ways Nigerians could live peacefully in the former apartheid enclave.
The 33-year-old business and media mogul was born of a Nigerian father and South African mother
He listed certain reasons why some Nigerians get murdered in South Africa to include their involvement in a crime.
According to him, 70 per cent of Nigerians killed in South Africa is directly or indirectly involved in illegal activities, while the killings are often masterminded by fellow Nigerians.
“Enormous battles are being fought among Nigerians in South Africa, such as the battle of power, territorial control, deals that went wrong and gang-related battles.
“South Africans are being paid by Nigerians to kill Nigerians.
“Some corrupt South African police are being paid and used by Nigerians to fight their battles against fellow Nigerians,’’ he said.
“We have had many occurrences where Nigerian nationals were suffocated and killed by the police during interrogation.
“Some undeniable factors that may somewhat lead to such events, for instance, police cannot walk into my offices and suffocate me to death.
“When you decide to involve yourself in shenanigan and dishonest activities you become inclined to police harassment and barbarities,’’ he stated.
He said South Africa has a high rate of murders, assaults, rapes and other violent crimes, compared to most countries.
Ndhlovu explained that this affects everyone in South Africa, including citizens and non-citizens.
He added that other Nigerians also get caught in the crossfire, being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
“For an example, a few years ago there was an incident in Limpopo where a Nigerian visited a friend, whose house was marked by South African Police Service as a drug house.
“The house was raided and this visiting guy was caught on the wrong side at the wrong time.
“For as long as you are a Nigerian and in that marked house you are a suspect.’’
He said the Nigerian was tortured and masked with a plastic bag in the quest to pursue him to reveal where the alleged drug consignment was being kept.
“Unfortunately, he collapsed and died on the scene.
Ndhlovu, however, alleged that the vast majority of South Africans naturally hate foreigners, except the Whites.
He explained that that was where the barbaric xenophobic rhetoric came from and fuelled by some political leaders.
Ndlohlovu advised Nigerians to be wary of misguided information designed to pad the real truth about what is happening among the Nigerian community in South Africa.

Young Blitzboks know all about patience and determination
Branco du Preez will play in his 74th HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series tournament, Cecil Afrika his 63rd and Werner Kok his 50th, so it is fair to say that the Blitzboks will rock up at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, Los Angeles with some serious experience for the HSBC LA Sevens on Saturday and Sunday.
On the other end of the Springbok Sevens scale you will find the likes of Sako Makata (seven tournaments) and Mfundo Ndhlovu (four tournaments), but both return to the USA leg of the circuit clear on what they need to do to add value to the Blitzboks’ effort on the weekend.
Makata is back in the tournament squad for the first time since June last year and Ndhlovu, the official reserve, also last played in Paris in 2019.
Makata made his World Series debut in Las Vegas a year ago and his second visit to the USA brings calm and determination to comply with his role and responsibility in the squad.
According to the former Sterling High School winger, now playing as a prop in the sevens code, getting back into the match day squad is a relief as well as a blessing.
He missed the start of the season due to an ankle injury and only made his return to the World Series last month, when he travelled to New Zealand and Australia as the official reserve. Makata was called into the squad in Sydney when Impi Visser was ruled out and played in the final against Fiji, which South Africa lost 12-10.
“I am excited to be back and that comes from some hard work behind the scenes, doing rehab and getting back to match fitness. I am pretty keen to contribute on the field now and give it my best shot,” the 22-year-old confessed.
The time off the field – excluding when he did rehabilitation and conditioning – was also spent watching the team play and learning from that, although only mentally.
“I watched the guys in my position in particular and what they were doing and what I would have done if I was in that situation,” said Makata.
“I am learning all the time and that worked for me, trying to put myself in their boots. There is often a different perspective from the outside and being in that match situation yourself and combining the two makes you better, I believe.”
Makata has now played in 26 matches and he is patiently adding to that tally: “I would have loved to have played more, but we have a big squad with a lot of quality players and coupled with my injury, I missed out.
“The importance though is grabbing this opportunity and showing that I can contribute to the squad and the system this weekend,” he said, adding that he welcomes the competition in the squad, as it improves his development as a player.
“It brings the best out in everyone and I can learn from some very experienced guys in the squad as well. It certainly improved me as a player and now I have the opportunity to convert that in the tournament.”
Ndhlovu, named as 13th player for this trip after being in the starting team last year, is also on a comeback trail after being sidelined for two months due to a hamstring injury. The laid-back Standerton-born outside back said his return to the squad is food for the soul.
“I am a religious person and believe that God will determine my destiny,” said Ndhlovu.
“I had some setbacks along the line with injury, but that made me stronger and more determined. It is great being back and I am taking in all of the experience and expertise from the senior guys.”
Ndhlovu made his debut in Hong Kong in 2018 and again featured in Paris in the same season. Last year, he played in Las Vegas and Paris and hopes for a longer run this time around.
“I certainly missed out on valuable game time in the last two years, but that was God's plan for me, and I accept that. I am blessed to still be here and would like to make the most of the opportunities that will still come my way,” he said.
The Blitzboks are second seeds in the tournament and will play alongside Ireland, Canada and Kenya in Pool B.
Blitzboks change three as Kok hits 50
Werner Kok will play in his 50th HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series tournament for the Springbok Sevens team next weekend in Los Angeles, where Ryan Oosthuizen, Kurt-Lee Arendse and Mfundo Ndhlovu will return to action in the green and gold.
Blitzbok coach Neil Powell made three changes to the side that lost in the final of the HSBC Sydney Sevens early this month, with Justin Geduld, Chris Dry and Zain Davids being rested after featuring in all four tournaments of the series in Dubai, Cape Town, Hamilton and Sydney so far.
Oosthuizen (in for Dry) and Arendse (in for Geduld) both played in the opening two tournaments of the season, while Ndhlovu last played in Paris last year when the 2018/19 World Series concluded.
Ndhlovu will travel west at official reserve, with Sako Makata elevated into the starting team to take over from Davids.
Stedman Gans will again captain the side in the absence of Siviwe Soyizwapi, who just missed the return to play deadline for this trip.
The Blitzboks, currently second on the overall log, have been drawn in the same pool as Kenya, Canada and Ireland at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, Los Angeles.
The South Africans will face Ireland and Canada for the first time in the current series, but will find familiar foes in Kenya, with their match against fellow Africans their fourth of the season. The East Africans outplayed the Blitzboks in their previous meeting in Hamilton.
“Justin, Chris and Zain played a lot of rugby so far and were always going to get a rest this trip,” said Powell.
“Ryan is very keen to get back into the action, Kurt-Lee has recovered from the knock that kept him out of the previous trip and Sako deserves his chance after travelling as the extra player to New Zealand and Australia.
“Mfundo is also back to full fitness and with Angelo Davids also able to play in the forwards, we called on his skills out wide for this trip. We want to give all players a fair opportunity to stake a claim for the Olympic Games.”
Kok will follow in the footsteps of Branco du Preez, Chris Dry, Kyle Brown, Frankie Horne, Cecil Afrika, Philip Snyman and Justin Geduld when he takes the field in his 250th match for his country.
The inclusion of Du Preez means that he will extend the SA record for tournament appearances in the World Series to 74. Afrika will also could extend his career point’s record for the Blitzboks (1445 points).
The players and management depart for the USA on Saturday.
The Springbok Sevens squad for the HSBC LA Sevens is:
1. Angelo Davids (four tournaments, 20 matches; 65 points, 13 tries)
2. Ryan Oosthuizen (19 tournaments, 95 matches; 95 points, 19 tries)
