The Nigerian High Commission in South Africa has advised Nigerians residing in South Africa to be highly careful as relates to Wednesday’s AFCON semi-final match between the Nigeria and South Africa.

In a letter that has been circulating on social media titled ‘ADVISORY ON SAFE CONDUCT FOR NIGERIANS IN SOUTH AFRICA BEFORE, DURING AND AFTER 2024 AFCON MATCH BETWEEN SUPER EAGLES AND BAFANA BAFAN’ expressed concern against ”potentially inflammatory online comments made by a section of South African citizens against Nigerians living in host country, largely influenced’ by the football match scheduled to hold Wednesday 7th February, 2024.

The Commission went further to observe that ”Most of the comments consist of veiled threats against Nigerians cooking jollof rice” before the match, and ”showing pepper to Nigerians if the Bafana Bafana lose to the Super Eagles” among others.

Thus the Commission hereby cautions the Nigerian community in South Africa to be careful and watchful of their utterances, be mindful of where they choose to watch the match especially in public places, and refrain from engaging in loud, riotous or provocative celebrations should the Super Eagles win the match.

Going further, the Commission demanded that they maintain the good conduct the Nigerians are known for, and be law abiding before, during and after the match.

However, should any provocations arise, the Nigerians were asked not to be reciprocated but report to appropriate authorities in the country.
