Boko Haram Trends after Nigerians Threaten to Unleash Insurgents on South Africans

Dreaded terrorist group, Boko Haram, is trending on Twitter…but not for dropping bombs or maiming innocent citizens.

Surprised, yeah? Okay, the terrorist group is trending because Nigerians have threatened to unleash it on South Africans in retaliation for the recent xenophobic attacks in the country.

In a renewed wave of xenophobia, a group of violent South Africans in Johannesburg took to the streets to loot and burn businesses owned by Nigerians.

In an interview, a visibly angry Nigerian man in South Africa told a TV journalist that his country would invite the insurgents to defend them as the attacks persist.

The man who alleged that the South African government is an accomplice in the continuous attacks on Nigerians in the country said:

“Boko must come to this country (South Africa) because the government of this country are part of this incident.

“Our government is coming to revenge for this thing that happen today.

“We are not going to take this easy this time around.”

The threat sent South African Twittersphere abuzz as social media users in the country turned it into a sensational topic.

They took to Twitter to mock Nigerians over the threat which has made Boko Haram a trending topic on Twitter South Africa.

  3. SA deputy minister of police defends his people, the president in the past made a comment about foreign nationals in a way that incites hate. Is true boko haram is a threat to Nigeria but they can be useful in this struggle. South Africans should await for their dream to come true.
