Trying to wade into the topic, Kate Henshaw had tweeted “We are responsible for how people treat us…” while Toke in a now-deleted tweet joined in with “Not all stories out of Nigeria is a true reflection of Nigerians. I have seen tweets saying a life for a life, and again I say not all South Africans are Xenophobic.

But Nigerians who were having none of it jumped on the tweets and started having a filled day.
