Xenophobia: Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed reveals that photos and videos released are fake


The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed has declared the videos and photos circulating around as fake and outdated.

Lai Mohammed made the statement on Thursday, September 5, while speaking at a press conference held in Abuja.

According to the minister, some of the videos showing what Nigerians are passing through in South Africa are manipulated, while others are simply fake or incidents which happened sometime ago. 

The minister gave an example with three of the videos that have footage of different incidents saying they did not involve Nigerians. He urged Nigerians to avoid further reprisals just as he assured that those who looted goods and vandalized businesses linked to South Africa would face the penalty.
