Chairman, House Committee on Diaspora Matters (Nigeria), Rep Rita Orji, has asked the South Africa Government to caution its citizens, stating that South Africans also leave and work in Nigeria too.
According to reports, Nigerians in South Africa are suffering from Xenophobic attack in which their businesses were burnt and their goods looted.
Speaking with Journalists in Abuja, Orji condemed the killings, wondered why the Federal Government has taken a strong decision to put and end to the killings and protect Nigerians Abroad.
“Are we calling them ours because we needed to get hard currencies remitted by them? What about their health and their businesses, are they being protected? Are they being taken care of in the treaties we’re signing in this country?
“Have we taken any bold steps to make sure that incessant killings of Nigerians abroad unlawfully are being taken care of? These are pertinent questions that any Nigerian that loves life would ask.
“And why would this conspiracy of silence linger while blood is being shed, while Nigerians are being killed like chicken in various countries, while Nigerians are becoming endangered species.
