Nigerian government condemns murder of another Nigerian in South Africa

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora, Mrs. Abike Dabiri -Erewa on Monday has said the killing of a Nigerian, Clement Nwaogu, in Rustenburg South Africa is unfortunate. 
Dabiri - Erewa, in a statement in Abuja condemned the burning of Nwaogu to death by a mob in the latest xenophobia attack in South Africa. She called on South African authorities to find lasting solution to the incessant killing of Nigerians in that country.

She said “Just a few days ago , on April 17 , the case came up in court . There was so much tension that even the Nigerian lawyers representing the Nigerians had to be escorted to court by Diplomatic police. The community has vowed to deal with anyone who plays a positive role in getting the accused Nigerians return to Rustenberg. Four South African policemen are currently in court for allegedly killing and maltreating Nigerians with embassy officials constantly present in court for the hearings . This is the first time this will be happening . However , the early warning signals put in place by the Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Interiors of both countries need to be reviewed

In recent times, South African had been killing foreigners, claiming the foreigners get jobs meant for the country's citizens.
