The Government of the Republic of South Africa has reopened its High Commission in Abuja and its Consulate in Lagos.
Acting South African High Commissioner to Nigeria, Bobby Moroe, who confirmed the development, said the High Commission in Abuja reopened yesterday (Monday), while the Consulate reopened today (Tuesday).
Moroe also said the reopening followed assurances by the Federal Government of the safety of the staff and the High Commission, including the current atmosphere in the country.
Yans recalls that the South Africa High Commission to Nigeria had shut down its offices and consulate for fear of attack by youths in the country.
Moroe, confirmed that he had directed the Mission to suspend all consular activities until the situation improved.
He said that the reported attacks on South Africans in parts of the country informed the decision to close down the Mission.
