The National Association of Kwara State Students (NAKSS) and National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) have condemned the attack on Nigerians living in South Africa.
The students’ bodies expressed their condemnation in a joint press statement signed by NAKSS National President, Muhammed Lateef and NASS Chairman, Ibrahim Jeje.
They believed that the xenophobic attacks on Nigerians and other black nationals in Durban, was contrary to the aims and objectives of the founding fathers of South Africa.
“We, hereby, call on the South African Government to call its citizens to order and stop the unprovoked attack on other Black nationals in South Africa.
“They should see all Africans as brothers and sisters and live in peace with each other, irrespective of nationality,” the students added.
The students appealed to Nigerians in South Africa to be vigilant and defend themselves against such attacks.
They also called on the Federal Government to evacuate Nigerians living in Durbar to a safe place until the xenophobic attacks were checked.
The students called on the management of the various South African companies in Nigeria like MTN, DSTV and Shoprite, to prevail on their home government to stop the attacks.
