Importing SVG in NextJS

I am trying to import an svg within a NextJS project, everytime I get this error

./assets/aboutimg.svg 1:0
Module parse failed: Unexpected token (1:0)
You may need an appropriate loader to handle this file type, currently no loaders are configured to process this file. See https://webpack.js.org/concepts#loaders
> <svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" width="578" height="1028" viewBox="0 0 578 1028">

I have tried using next-images and also svgr. I will paste my About.js code below, it would be excellent if someone could let me know what I have been doing wrong.

import LayoutNoLogo from '../comps/LayoutNoLogo'
import AboutImg from '../assets/aboutimg.svg'

const About = () => {
    return (
        <LayoutNoLogo>
            <div className="row">
                <div className="column-1">
                    <img src={AboutImg} />
                </div>
                <div className="column-2">
                    <h1>About</h1>
                </div>
            </div>
            <style jsx>{`

        `}</style>

        </LayoutNoLogo>
    )
}

export default About;

Answer

Using next-images and adding the correct module exports allowed me to use images of all file types.
