“We, therefore, wish to officially ask all South African-owned businesses in Nigeria to relocate in the next seven days.”

The Federal Government has issued a final warning to the South African government over the incessant and unjustifiable killing of Nigerians in South Africa, adding that it will no longer be tolerated “as Nigerians are already running out of patience with the increasing scourge.”

Abike Dabiri-Erewa, the Chief Executive Officer of Nigerians in the Diaspora Commission, relaying warning in Abuja on Wednesday, said that “the xenophobic attacks had reached the tipping point.”

While talking with journalists on the increasing attacks against Nigerians in the former apartheid enclave, Dabiri-Erewa warned that “We are reaching a tipping point where one more death of a Nigerian in South Africa will be unbearable to Nigerians. Nigerians are all angry that any more killing of any Nigerian in South Africa will not be tolerated.”

“118 Nigerians had been killed as of 2016 in South Africa, and that between 2016 till date, an additional 88 Nigerians had been killed in the country.”

Responding to the mishaps, President of the National Association of Nigerian Students, Danielson Akpan, said: “Nigerian students would not sit idly by and watch the dastardly acts of violence continue.”

He said, “We have seen the helplessness of the South African government in reining in their citizens and wish to condemn in unambiguous terms the continued pampering of those involved.

“Every nation has its internal crisis; hence, no citizen of other nation should be sacrificed for criminal activities of South Africans or any other.

“Since the economic prosperity of Nigerians can no longer be tolerated and their lives secured in South Africa, there’s no need also to condone the continued flourishing of South African businesses and her citizens in Nigeria.

“We, therefore, wish to officially ask all South African-owned businesses in Nigeria to relocate in the next seven days.”
