Xenophobia: Nigeria to take actions against South African over burning of shops, killings


The Federal Government of Nigeria has vowed to take actions against South Africa following the killing of three Nigerians in Johannesburg.

Shops belonging to Nigerians and other Africans were looted in several parts of the country in the latest xenophobic attacks on foreign nationals.

The Minister of Foreign affairs Godfrey Onyeama in a tweet post on Monday said the FG would take actions over the growing incident.

“Received sickening and depressing news of continued burning and looting of Nigerian shops and premises in #SouthAfrica by mindless criminals with ineffective police protection. Enough is enough. We will take definitive measures.”
