Xenophobia: Minister Condemns Fresh Attacks On Nigerians In South Africa





Clergyman of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, on Monday, said that Nigeria would take complete measures in the result of xenophobic assaults on Nigerians in South Africa. 

Onyeama was responding to the most recent assaults on Nigerian-possessed organizations and properties by South Africans. 

On his confirmed Twitter handle, the outside clergyman called the assailants, "thoughtless offenders" and said police mediation was "inadequate". 

Onyeama tweeted, "Got sickening and discouraging updates on kept copying and plundering of Nigerian shops and premises in #SouthAfrica by thoughtless crooks with incapable police assurance. Nothing more will be tolerated. We will take authoritative measures." 

Most recent assaults on outsiders (Nigerians particularly) in South Africa began a week ago after a cab driver was killed by a supposed street pharmacist in Pretoria. It was theorized that the supposed executioner was a Nigerian, which started challenges, plundering and consuming of outside possessed organizations. Police brought it leveled out. 

Notwithstanding, the President of the Nigeria Union South Africa, Adetola Olubajo on Monday said that the assaults started again on Sunday morning in Jeppestown territory of Johannesburg when a structure was set on fire by a furious horde. 

He said Nigerians have lost organizations and properties to the exercises of the horde.
