In South Africa, a young Nigerian man got into a fight with police officers who wanted to arrest him.

It is unclear what his offense was, but he resisted arrest and attempted to flee, but he was apprehended before he could get too far.

The suspect was seen struggling to break free from the grip of a white police officer, robbing him of his firearm in the process.

However, the police officer quickly recovered his pistol.

The incident occurred near Pharaoh in Johannesburg, attracting a group of Nigerians who attempted to secure the release of their compatriots.

In a video which was posted on social media, a man raised an alarm that Nigerians are being harassed and intimidated in the country.

He continued speaking up and calling for help while the man being rough handled fought the officer.
