South Africa’s high commissioner to Nigeria denies Xenophobic attacks

Bobby Monroe, the South Africa’s High Commissioner to Nigeria, has dismissed reports of Xenophobic attacks in his country.

He denied that the strikes in South Africa are xenophobic and aimed at Nigerians.

The Commissioner stated this at a media briefing which featured Nigeria’s foreign affairs ministry headed by Geoffery Onyeama.

He defined the attacks as ‘sporadic acts of violence’ explaining that businesses belonging to other South African citizens were also affected in the attack.

Recall that the Federal Government of Nigeria had earlier on Monday called on South Africa over the recent xenophobic violence on Nigerians in South Africa.
