The United Nations (UN) has strongly condemned the recent xenophobic attack on Nigerians and other foreigners living in South Africa.
Some days ago, properties worth millions of naira, belonging to Nigerians in South Africa, were set ablaze with many others looted by South Africans.
Reacting to the sad news on her Twitter handle, Dr Amina Mohammed, Deputy Secretary General of the UN, strongly condemned the attacks against Africans and women.
“I join the UN Secretary General, Antonio Guterres to strongly condemn the acts of violence in different provinces in South Africa, including attacks against Africans & women. We welcome President Cyril Ramaphosa’s unequivocal call for inclusion, solidarity & strengthened accountability”, she wrote.
