President Muhammadu Buhari has on Tuesday, sent a special envoy to President Ramaphosa, to remind him of his international obligation of safeguarding the lives and properties of foreigners in his country.
This followed another spate of attacks on foreigners, which resulted in the death of many Nigerians and the vandalisation of their businesses.
Buhari disclosed this via the official tweeter handle of the Presidency ‘@NGRPresident’, Buhari instructed the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama to summon the South African High Commissioner to Nigeria.
The recent attacks on Nigerians in South Africa have sparked among Nigerians who are aghast that citizens of a country Nigeria helped so much to free from the iron grip of apartheid have developed so much hate against their nationals in the southern African country.
Reports indicate that some restive youths were repelled bysecurity forces when they banded together to vent their anger on South Africa business in Nigeria, including Shoprite, Multi-Choice and MTN.
