Because of the wickedness of some South Africans and the systemic support of the South African government to xenophobia and ultimately, the inability and failure of the Nigerian government to protect its citizen - you were battered to death and your car set ablaze while the mob cheered. May your spirit hunt them down and trouble them until they go crazy."
