The Nigerian Government yesterday condemned the xenophobic attacks in South Africa, describing them as unacceptable and demanding action from the South African Government to end the madness.  

A Foreign Ministry statement on the issue reads in part: “The people and Government of Nigeria stand in solidarity with the rest of the world to condemn these unprovoked attacks on fellow Africans who have left their countries to seek greener pastures and better livelihood for themselves.

“The Government of Nigeria would like to use this medium to reiterate the abhorrence of violence and also stand firm in its conviction that no cause could justify taking innocent lives.

“The Federal Government therefore calls on the Government of South Africa to live up to its responsibility and take all necessary steps to stop the on-going xenophobic attacks and put in place policies and structures to prevent a reoccurrence.”
