South Africa Embassy has been forced to shut it doors for fear of Nigerians youth invasion as a retaliation for the xenophobic attacks and killings of Nigerians and others Africans in south Africa.
The South African embassy has now join south African local businesses in Nigeria, MTN and Shoprite, which have come under attack to shut down.
The Department of International Relations and Cooperation’s Lunga Ngqengelele reveals this development to eNC.
Recall that some victims of the attack in South Africa, who visited the Nigerian Embassy for help and protection were denied entry into the place.
Former president of Nigerian Union South Africa, Iyke Anyene, revealed that Nigerians had remained in the houses, afraid for their lives and unsure if they would be the next victims.
He said, “In some parts of Guateng Province the looting has continued.
“It started in Pretoria and people have not been able to do their businesses. It is not safe, there is widespread looting.
“Some Nigerian victims went to the high commission but were denied entry into the place.
“The high commission claimed that they are dealing with the situation but we don’t know what to do. We need results, people are losing their lives and properties.”
“Nigerian Embassy does not exist in South Africa. Some of our people affected by this attack went to the high commission but the ambassador did not come out. It is a big shame on them.”
