South Africa May Ban Evacuated Nigerians From Further Entry

The National Association of Nigerian Students has threatened to shut down the South African Embassy in Nigeria, DSTV and MTN among other business operated by South Africans in Nigeria, due to the rising cases of xenophobic killings of Nigerians in South Africa.

In a statement in Abuja on Thursday, NANS President, Danielson Akpan, condemned the recent killing of Mrs. Elizabeth Ndubuisi in her hotel room in South Africa while attending a seminar. Ndubuisi, who was said to be the Deputy Director-General of the Chartered Insurance Institute of Nigeria (CIIN), was found dead in her room at Emperor’s Palace Casino, Hotel and Convention Centre, Johannesburg, South Africa.

Akpan gave records of the killings and threatened to moblise the over 40million Nigerian students if the xenophobic acts are not stopped. “The rascality of South Africans has gotten to an alarming state. As at today, official record of Nigerians killed in South Africa has risen to 127. These are human beings, these are Nigerians. Unfortunately, this figure is just the confirmed and official figure, not to talk about the ones swept under the carpets”.
