Fourth runner-up at the just concluded Big Brother Naija show, Omashola Kola Oburoh, Popularly known for his ‘Warri’ chant in the House.

The Delta State indigene spoke about xenophobic attacks on Nigerians by South Africans and how disappointed he is over that,

“It is a shame; it is not something nice. When I was in the House, I was always talking about South Africa and it is almost like home for me”.

I have been in South Africa for 13 years now and I have been through it all. I have witnessed xenophobic attacks on Nigerians, but I have never been attacked.

The whites dominate where I live in South Africa and so it experiences less violence than other places. I feel bad and sorry for Nigerians being attacked in South Africa.

The attacks are not good and I condemn such violence against Nigerians and other nationals living in South Africa.

During the apartheid era, Nigeria stood and supported them and I don’t know why they should turn around and attack Nigerians living there”.
