Meanwhile, some of the victims of the attacks who said the claims were untrue, narrated their plight to Channels Television.
One of the agents explained that their businesses were legitimate and whatever benefits they received were only a result of their hard work.
“They say we are driving nice cars, wearing expensive clothes, getting married to their women – Its by God’s grace, we work hard for it,” one of the victims said.
The Nigerian Government had also called on the South African Government to take decisive and definitive measures to protect its citizens and other Africans within the country’s borders.
The call was made by the Senior Special Assistant to Nigeria’s President on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora, Honourable Abike Dabiri-Erewa.
Mrs Dabiri-Erewa also urged the African Union to intervene urgently in the renewed attacks.
