Shoprite in Sango on total lockdown as police clash with NANS Protesters.
The Protesters in their numbers gathered this morning to lock down Shoprite in Sango Ota.
The customers were escorted out in numbers as police watch
barely 48 hours ago, some of South Africans own companies were locked up by the NANS, protesting the xenophobic attack on Nigerians in their country.
It is coming two days after NANS gives South African companies seven days ultimatum to leave the country.
In a statement issued in Abuja, it states;
Shoprite in Sango on total lockdown as police clash with NANS Protesters
Behold, the killings have continued and have even assumed a more dangerous dimension.
This worsening development calls for a swift reaction.
Importantly, we want to call on Nigerians in South Africa to reconsider their stay in South Africa and return home.
Having gone through the first phase without any remorse or practical action to end xenophobic attacks in South Africa, we wish to announce that Nigerian students have decided to take on South Africans the same way they are doing to our people.
We have seen the South African government’s helplessness in reining in its citizens and wish to condemn in unambiguous terms the continued pampering of those involved.
Every nation has its internal crisis; hence no citizen of other countries should be sacrificed for criminal activities of South Africans or any other.
Since Nigerians’ economic prosperity can no longer be tolerated and their lives secured in South Africa, there’s no need to condone the continued flourishing of South African businesses and her citizens in Nigeria.
Therefore, we wish to officially ask all South African-owned businesses in Nigeria to relocate in the next seven days.
We specifically want Multichoice, MTN, Stanbic IBTC Bank, Shoprite, and others to close their businesses in their interest within seven days.
“In the same vein, we request that South African nationals in Nigeria should return to their home country as we can no longer watch them enjoy peaceful living in Nigeria while our citizens in their country continue to pay with dear lives for no reason other than being resourceful and flourishing in their businesses and career.
South Africans should henceforth leave Nigeria with all their businesses. Nigerians are not joking about it, and we are giving seven days ultimatum for this action to be carried out. Diplomacy has failed.
