Update on SA Xenopobia Attacks, Nigerian Government Now Ready To Evacuate its Citizen


                                     NIGERIA TO START EVACUATING HER CITIZENS FROM SOUTH AFRICA ON MONDAY AS ATTACKS RISE  
According to reports from nigerianwatch, the Federal government is set to start evacuating Nigerians as response to the persistent xenophobic attacks sweeping across South Africa. 

In the past week, South Africans have resorted to vent their frustrations on fellow Africans and migrants as a result of the downward slide in their economy. The brutal xenophobic violence which started from the Zulu clan, has spread to major cities like  Durban, Pretoria and Johannesburg. 
Officially, the Nigerian government has reported that none of her citizens have lost their lives yet to the attacks. Earlier this week, the Nigerian House of Representatives passed a vote calling on President Goodluck Jonathan to withdraw the high commission to Pretoria in response to the crisis.
Yesterday, the Nigerian foreign ministry announced that the evacuation of its citizens in South Africa will begin on Monday,20 April. Nigeria’s high commission in Pretoria has said that Nigerians who feel endangered and do not have the fare back home to quickly make themselves available for evacuation.
According to the high commission spokesperson,  “As from Monday 20th of April 2015, the process of evacuating Nigerians from South Africa will begin as directed by the Federal Government of Nigeria due to the ongoing xenophobic attacks on black foreign nationals in the Republic of South Africa. To that effect an evacuation register will be open at the High Commission in Pretoria for Nigerians intending to return to Nigeria but cannot afford flight tickets.”

Nigerian lawmakers on Thursday, also vowed to invoke relevant business laws to frustrate South Africans operating retail outlets in Nigeria, if immediate actions were not taken by the government.
