Xenophobic attacks: Nigerians protest at the Nigerian High Commission in South Africa

A group of Nigerians on Thursday, 29th of August staged a protest at the Nigerian High Commission in Pretoria, South Africa’s capital.

The protesters, mostly victims of xenophobic attacks in South Africa said they are angered by the recent massive looting of foreign-owned shops in the city by some South Africans.

Many of the protesters lamented that they had lost goods and business investments to the looting which occurred on Wednesday at Pretoria business district.

The protesters said the protest was needed because they are now feeling unsafe in the foreign country.

They claimed that Nigerian representatives in South Africa were slow in responding to their plight.

Some said their shops were looted and later burnt.
