Xenophobic Attacks: Nigerian Government Summons South Africa High Commissioner



FG Reveals Why Foreigners Are Leaving Nigeria Over Coronavirus

South African High Commissioner to Nigeria, Bobby Moroe has been asked to come home and explain the situation of things as the killings of Nigerians keep increasing daily.

Naija News learnt that the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, gave the order after the latest xenophobic attacks on Nigerians in South Africa.

However, a meeting has been scheduled to hold between the duo today.

A senior official of the ministry, Kimiebi Ebenfa, confirmed the development in a WhatsApp message.

It reads: “I am directed to inform you that the Minister of Foreign Affairs has summoned the High Commissioner of South Africa for a meeting this morning by 11. The meeting was confirmed a few minutes ago.”

Meanwhile, Some Nigerians earlier today have organized a protest in front of the Nigerian Embassy in South Africa over the continuous attacks by the South Africans.

According to the protesters, the Nigerian Embassy in South Africa has failed to protect Nigerians in the country.

An official of the Foreign Ministry, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, informed our correspondent that the fracas that led to the latest attacks on foreigners was as a result of fake news by one of the local media.

According to the official, the local media wrongly reported the fracas between taxi drivers and drug dealers which led to the attacks on foreigners by a mob.
