Following the ongoing xenophobic assault against Nigerians and foreigners in South Africa, the High Commission of South Africa in Nigeria has shut its exercises.
The development was uncovered on Thursday by eNCA, a South African media house.
The report cited Lunga Ngqengelele from the Department for International Relations and Cooperation, expressing that the choice was a reason for worry for the wellbeing of consulate workers.
“We have been in correspondence with the Nigerian government and we have been guaranteed of the security of the businesses belonging to SA.”
“Nigerian police controlled the uprising from the Nigerians assaulting SA business, we comprehend that captures were made. We are satisfied that there was no death toll”.
The assault against Nigerians, organizations and properties has prompted backlash assaults in Nigeria.
