Xenophobia can involve perceptions of an ingroup toward an outgroup and can manifest itself in suspicion of the activities of others, and a desire to eliminate their presence to secure a presumed purity and may relate to a fear of losing national, ethnic or racial identity.

South Africa has apologised to Nigeria over a spate of xenophobic attacks which led to a spike in tensions between the two countries. A special envoy from South Africa presented an apology to Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari. President Buhari responded to profuse apologies from the South African president, pledging that the relationship between the two countries will be solidified.
