Xenophobia: Nigeria Gives South Africa 24hours Ultimatum. Threatens Action by Nobody: 1:11pm On Apr 20, 2015
Nigerian protesters on Monday besieged the South African high commission in Abuja to demand an end to xenophobic attacks on foreigners in South Africa. Numbering about 500, the protesters gave South Africa 24 hours to stop the killings or face the wrath of Nigerians.

“If Nigeria is pushed to the wall, it will bite,” one of them said. Speaking with TheCable, Deji‎ Adeyanju, coordinator of the protest, argued against retaliation by Nigerians, but urged the South African government to stop the killings forthwith. “We want a situation in which the South African government will take decisive action against the killings‎,” he said.

“The businesses of Nigerians are being threatened and it seems South Africans are celebrating now that foreigners are leaving. We will not retaliate. “We want to use‎ this protest to tell South Africa we are their friends. We stood by them during the apartheid era. However, we feel South African government is supporting the killings. We don’t want South Africans to be attacked.‎”

However, another leader of the protest, Tolu Ebun, disagreed with Adeyanju, saying “If Nigeria is pushed to the wall it can bite,” and added “We give South Africa 24 hours to stop the killings‎ or…” Adewale Fawe, a protester, restated Ebun’s position, saying “We can retaliate. South Africa cannot bear the weight of Nigeria.”

The atmosphere was charged as protesters took turns to ventilate their opinions. Even the presence of the representative of the South African high commiss‎ioner, Thembe Sosonwan smouldered nationalist feelings among the protesters who sang the national anthem loudly. Addressing the protesters, Sosonwan assured them of his government’s commitment to ending the bloodshed. “We South Africans are proud of our Nigerians brothers and sisters,” he said.

“These things that are happening in South Africa are not acceptable. We assure you that the South African government is committed to bringing these things to a close.” According to reports, the xenophobic attacks in South Africa‎ have cost Nigerians resident in the country about N21 million. The first Nigerian to be attacked was a mechanic, whose workshop with 10 cars and all the tools inside was destroyed by some South Africans on Friday. The Nigerian government has said it will evacuate its citizens from the country if the attacks persist. There are about 800, 000 Nigerians living in South Africa‎.

Yesooo but l think it's the highest form of hypocrisy when Nigerians ignore the very terrifying wave of tribal hatred sweeping the country, attacks on Christains and other minorities in the north, the herdsmen merciless slauthering of Nigerians but derive so much joy in condemning xenophobic attacks happening in far away South Africa.Just less than a month ago an oba made this type of call and some of his people applauded him.

Are we really telling ourselves the truth ? We should remove the log in our eyes before removing the spec in another person eyes

While I condemn the xenophobic attacks in SA, its good to note that we in Nigeria are not holier than them either.
How soon have we forgotten our own Lagoonophobic statements by Our own Oba Lil Wayne Zulu Akiolu?
If we demand apologies from SA government and wishes to take actions, I guess the same measures shld also be the case on Oba Lagoon of Eko.
Its such statements dat fuel hate and riots among the populace. Afterall, if there was no "Goodmorning", there won't be a "How are You".

CHARITY SHOULD BEGIN FRM LAGOS.

It is wickedness trying to turn this into an Igbo matter, what is wrong with you for goodness sake? The title reads 'Nigerians' but you have turned it to 'Igbos.' undecided undecided undecided

God have mercy!

Brev, is giving ultimatum the way to go when dealing with foreign relations?

Just summon the SA high commissioner in Nigeria, and do the rest via diplomacy. That is the way to go.

They are just making Nigeria look stupid right now by putting themselves in a tight corner. What is going to happen if nothing stops after 24hrs? Give another ultimatum? Loooool

Your comment is an obscenity!

Do you know Nigerians have been attacked and killed in South Africa? Reports even have it that children were not spared as well. Their deaths obviously meant nothing to you, else you wouldn't be throwing ethnic jibes at a time like this!

Who gives Empty ultimatums in Nigeria?

Stop threatening others in their land......they have the number and the resources.

Stop jeopardizing innocent lives.

Strategize wisely. Make sure the weakest in your group is well protected before giving useless ultimatums.

There's a line between bravery and stupidity........it seems like you guys use both interchangeably.

Bravo! We must send a strong message to them. Nigerian Government must protect and respect the life of her citizen outside the shore of the country. Am not in support of violence but am in support of sanctions through trade embargo.
