There has been a fresh breakout of xenophobic attack in South Africa which has been greatly condemned by people around the world.
The Federal Government of Nigeria took to its official and verified Twitter account to react to the attacks on Nigerians living and doing business in South Africa.
The Federal government stated that the attacks are unacceptable and that President Buhari will meet with the South African president, Cyril Ramaphosa, in October over the rising attacks.
Their tweet reads;
The continuing attacks on Nigerian nationals and businesses in South Africa are unacceptable. Enough is enough. Nigeria will take definitive measures to ensure safety and protection of her citizens.
Last week Pres @MBuhari met with Pres @CyrilRamaphosa, on sidelines of #TlCAD7, in Japan, to
discuss this. Further discussions scheduled for October 2019, during Pres Buhari’s official visit to SA. In the meantime Nigeria will take further steps to ensure safety of citizens in SA.
