Nigerians have burned down Chinese businesses in retaliation for attacks on Africans in China.

A video from Nigeria proves that Nigerians have burnt down Chinese shops in Ogun in retaliation for the attacks on Africans in China.

Chinese Ambassador, to the African Union Liu Yuxi, told the African Union that they regret and are embarrassed of by the incident that happened in Guangdong Provence in the People Republic of China, where Africans where attacked. The Chinese government has taken action by arresting the Chinese whose social media post caused the unfortunate incidents and Ambassador Yuxi also ensured that they have taken measures to protect the safety, security and dignity of the African population in China.

A coverage by France24 'observers', has debunked the information as the video wrongly says that "Chinese shops and buildings set on fire in Nigeria" The video shows a fire from 15 April in a market in Ibadan, the capital of Oyo State in the southwest of Nigeria.
