Xenophobia: NANS tells Nigerians to shun firms owned by South Africa

Regarding to the xenophobic attacks against Nigerians in South Africa, the National Association of Nigerians (NANS) has called on Nigerians to shun services and products offered by South African firms in the nation.

NANS spoke during a peaceful protest in Ekiti State in conjunction with the National Coalition for Yoruba Youth and Students.

The President of National coalition of Yoruba Youth and Students, Comrade Ashefon, called for immediate release of the 36 persons arrested during similar anti-xenophobic protest in Lagos.

The Youth leader, who condemned in strong terms, the indiscriminate looting and killing of Nigerians, also gave seven day ultimatum to Nigerian government to stop the carnage, saying the students body may result to self help.

He said : “Nigerians in South Africa deserved to be treated with dignity, respect, freedom and mostly be protected from further provocation, looting and killings.

“The protest against Xenophobic attacks in South Africa by various organizations across Africa has continued to linger while citizens are expecting the authority to arrest the situation. This is the best they can do under this situation,” he stated.
