Xenophobia: South Africa Shuts Down Lagos Embassy

Following anti-Xenophobia
protests in Lagos and Abuja, the South African consulate in Lagos has shut down
its embassy today. The consulate was shut after dozens of Nigerians carried
placards on Tuesday and protested to the South African embassy in Abuja and
also to MTN head office saying the attacks on black immigrants in South Africa
must stop.

The protesters, led by
members of the National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, demanded an
immediate end to the attacks and killings. They also threatened to attack South
African nationals and businesses in Nigeria, if the attacks did not stop within
72 hours. This we learnt is one of the major reasons the embassy was shut down
