Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, has reacted to the recent Xenophobic attacks on Nigerians living in South Africa, Igbere TV reports.

Igbere TV had previously reported that properties worth millions of naira, belonging to Nigerians in South Africa, were set ablaze by South Africans.

A viral video sighted by Igbere TV on Monday also showed several shops being looted by the angry South African citizens in their large numbers.

President of the Nigeria Union in South Africa, Adetola Olubajo, said the attacks began on Sunday morning in Jeppestown area of Johannesburg.

Mr Olubajo said in a statement on Monday that the mob “looted several shops that were around the vicinity suspected to be owned by foreign nationals.”

Reacting to the development on his verified Twitter handle, Gbajabiamila said he was cutting short his trip abroad to possibly reconvene the House and address the killings.

“Will be cutting short my trip to Tanzania for the 50th Commonwealth Parliamentary Conference @CPA_Secretariat and will be leaving today, for the leadership of the @HouseNGR to consider cutting short the recess and reconvening for one day to address the killings of Nigerians in SA”, he wrote.

Igbere TV recalls that the National Assembly proceeded on its annual recess early August, immediately after the Ministerial screening exercise.

Its high time the youths in Nigeria also start looting South African business in Nigeria as retaliation.



Modified: For all those saying I am a thief and don't have a job for supporting retaliation against South African companies in Nigeria, you are all mad. There is an adage that says "its not every situation that being patient solves, and likewise it is not everything that retaliating destroys. This has been going on for a long time, and I believe it is time we Nigerians react.

Nigeria and her Twitter commando reactors...at this point there is nothing both governments can do but to try and map out modalities to curtail the recurrence of this unfortunate event.

It is not good for the image of both countries and a shitstain on African Unity.

We remembered that particular day Nelson Mandela was freed after 27 years in prison, It was celebration galore here in Nigeria. 
Our School declared a public holiday , remembered vividly just like yesterday. 
We remembered all Nigeria did during the apartheid period in south Africa. 
So why all these hatred for your fellow African brothers and sisters?!
Let us live in peace guys.
Let Love lead.

I don't even know why these people are kept in the house. They don't discuss anything meaningful and when there is something serious to talk about, they keep quiet like fools.

Nigerians are dying and they are even considering to sit. Who should be the first set of people to call an emergency meeting and look for ways to address the issue.

We need to recall these dishonorable men & women feeding fat and doing noting.

Come to think of it, the president & GCFR hasn't said anything till now! Damn!!!

I pity Nigeria and Nigerians, we are being played undecided
