116 Nigerian men killed in South Africa for the past two years

Media Research indicates that 116 Nigerians were killed in South Africa in a period of two years; the senior special Assistant to the President on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora Abike Dadiri-Erewa disclosed this statement.

It is reported that the South African Police carried out nearly 7 in 10 of the killings.

This was revealed by the presidential aide this Tuesday when she met with the South African high Commissioner to Nigeria Mr Lulu Louis Mnguni in Abuja.

The latest killing of a Nigerian in South Africa occurred in December 2016 when Metropolitan Police in Cape Town choked Victor Nnadi, a native of Imo State, to death.

‘In the last two years, 116 Nigerians in South Africa have been killed and according to the statistics; 63% of them were killed by the police” Dabiri Erewa said.

Erewa expressed worry over the criminalization of Nigerian migrants in South Africa.

She said the extra judicial killings were worrisome even though some Nigerians commit offence and deserves to be punished in line with the law because everyone has right to life.

And she pleaded the South African Authority to ensure the killings are thoroughly investigated and justice done.
‘We should do more with our business relationships. And hopefully take over not just the African continent but also the world, “she said.

The High Commissioner in his remarks assured,” We hope to sit down together and reflect on the matter and find a lasting solution to the killings, “the envoy said.

Again he also apologized to the `Nigerians who have lost their loved ones due to the killing in South Africa.
