    Following renewed xenophobic attacks against Nigerians in South Africa, the Federal Government has summoned the South African High commissioner to Nigeria Bobby Moroe to a crucial meeting scheduled to hold today.

    Recall that Foreign Affairs Minister Geoffrey Onyema had on Monday vowed that the Federal Government would take decisive measures following the xenophobic attacks on Nigerians and their businesses in South Africa.

    He described the news of the attack as ‘sickening and depressing.

    Yans had reported that Nigerian shops in South Africa were looted and burnt down by suspected South African hoodlums with three persons killed in the process.

    The death toll of Nigerians killed in South Africa has continued to rise with the frequent xenophobic attacks between 2016 and 2019. Available estimates from Statistics South Africa and the United Nations show that over 30,000 Nigerians live in South Africa.

    Data reveal that 127 Nigerians have been killed in three years, while 13 out of these were reportedly killed by South African police. The most disturbing of these killings are extrajudicial killings by the operatives of South African Police Service. From January to June 2019, 10 Nigerians have been killed, either by citizens of South Africans or South African Police Service.
