The Special envoy sent to South Africa by President Muhammadu Buhari following the xenophobic attacks on Nigerians has returned to the country.
The special envoy who is also the Director-General of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Ahmed Abubakar, returned to the country after he met with President Cyril Ramophosa of South Africa.
Naija News recalls Abubakar was received by top officials of Nigeria’s High Commission led by the High Commissioner when he arrived in South Africa on Thursday.
He refused to speak with newsmen after meeting with President Ramophosa in Pretoria on Friday.
A Presidency source confirmed to The Punch on Saturday that the special envoy had returned to the country.
He said, “I can confirm to you that the special envoy has returned to the country after his visit to South Africa and his meeting with President Ramophosa.
“The next step is for him to meet with President Buhari and brief him on the outcome of his trip.
“That meeting will take place any time from now.”
