According to findings made available to schoolworld, in what seemed like another wave of xenophobic attacks on Nigerians and nationals of other countries, which started last week Wednesday, some South Africans reportedly burnt down foreign-owned shops in the Pretoria Central Business District.

Adetola Olubajo, Nigeria Union President in SA, in a statement, noted that a furniture shop, electronics shop and a gold exchange shop owned by Nigerians were among the shops destroyed during the attacks.

“We shall hit them like a tsunami. We will also deal with saboteurs. Just expect our reactions in the coming days,” Akpan stated.

Akpan added that NANS would demand the intervention of the international community on the attacks during its nationwide protest.
