Nigerian Govt Warns South Africans To Stop Killing Its Citizens..

Nigerian government has condemned the killing of another Nigerian, Tochukwu Nnadi, in South Africa.



Senior Special Assistant to the President on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, in a statement, described the latest extra-judicial killing as “worrying and condemnable”.


Dabiri-Erewa said the gruesome killing of Nnadi by Police in South Africa, was unacceptable to the people and government of Nigeria.

The statement signed by her media assistant, Abdur-Rahman Balogun, however, reiterated President Muhammadu Buhari’s call to Nigerians to avoid crimes like drug peddling, which attracts stiff penalties.

Dabiri-Erewa lamented that the killing of Nnadi had brought to 20 the number of Nigerians killed in South Africa in 2016 alone. Ikejiaku Chinedu, Monday Okorie, Gideon Ogalaonye, Nnamdi Michael, Adeniyi Olumoko, Christian Onwukaike were also victims..

The presidential aide stated that, “The barbaric behaviour of the perpetrators is not only unacceptable, but also calls for urgent attention by diplomatic authorities in Nigeria and South Africa.”


“My heart goes out to the families of the deceased and pray God to grant the departed soul eternal rest.”

Dabiri-Erewa charged the South African government to ensure that justice prevails by carrying out investigation and bring the culprit to book.

Eyewitnesses say the deceased was not struggling after he was arrested and handcuffed, but one of the officers held onto his neck and squeezed him tightly until blood started gushing out.

Meanwhile, the Nigeria Union in Pretoria has also condemned the killing.

Its secretary, Mr. Adetola Olubajo, called on the Nigerian Mission “to demand results of investigations of all murder cases involving Nigerian victims from the South African authority’’.

Although a high number of Nigerians have been victims of the xenophobia in South Africa, the country’s government has not carried out major prosecution of those behind the killings.

South Africans are born and nurtured with hatred and bile against others.
I happened to work with few of them when I newly came to Europe, I could see and feel the hate from their eyes and body movements. They hate you for no reason, most especially when they know you're a Nigerian.


Nigerians should desist from illegal businesses too. I hate it when Nigerians are always mentioned along with criminal activities.

I hope justice is served.

The Nigerian government is mad!

Its citizens are bin murdered everyday in their homes, towns & villages by rampaging Fulani herdsmen both from within & outside the country, yet nothing concrete has bin done to stem the tide. From Benue in the Middle Belt to Enugu in the East, they have now berth in Kaduna leaving corpses in their trail.
The South African government would be foolish to take this government serious.
Hopefully, they don't breach the South-South, b'cos na here the madness go end.
I just dey imagine Fulani herdsmen killing one person from Okrika or Kalabari or Ogbakiri....omo, anybody wey wear kaftan for Rivers State dey in danger o !!!

Nigerian government shld be given the joker award for 2017. If they see what their citizens have turns south africa to eh. They wont even be bold to write such. First step is to warn nigerians over there to respect themselves and let us see if the killings wont stop.

They want to make quick money na. Any little opportunity they get to flee from Nigeria, they turn to something else

No life is better than another but they should remove the log in their eyes before asking others to do same. How many Nigeria's had died in the hands of other Nigerians in the north?

Abike dabiri and her Oga Buhari does not care about anyone and its disturbing! If a citizen misbehaves in your country, deport him ASAP period! Nobody has any right to take the life of another on any level.... All that woman and her employers and employees do is TALK!! There is no where in the world people keep condemning acts without acting..South Africa needs to understand our stand on this! With serious actions. so pissed
