FG Condemns Attacks On Nigerians In South Africa

The Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Martin Uhomoibhi,
has condemned the reported attacks on Nigerians in South Africa last week.
He said: “We condemn in strong terms, any acts of racism, xenophobia and discrimination perpetrated by whomsoever, including in that particular country.
“We are appalled that these incidents occur in a country that we hold in highest esteem and which is a brotherly country to Nigeria.
“We hope that due processes would be taken so that this does not happen (again).”
He called on the South African Government to take appropriate actions against those responsible for the attacks and also urged the country to abide by its commitment to international standards of behaviour and cordial relations between both countries.
On April 2 and 3, some Nigerians were hospitalised in Pretoria after attacks by organised gangs in South Africa.
During the attacks, no fewer than 25 shops owned by Nigerians in Johannesburg and Pretoria were looted by the South African gangs.
