NUSA PRESIDENT, OLUBAJO ADETOLA QUESTIONED NIGERIA’S ENVOY IN SOUTH AFRICA OVER KILLINGS OF NIGERIANS

The killing of Nigerians in South Africa is very painful and remains bitter pill to swallow. In fact, we have been reduced to a pathetic level that we no longer talk about daily harassment and loss of properties.

It’s incredible that the civil servants who are paid to oversee the wellbeing of Nigerians in South Africa are tactically colluding with the killing machine by spreading distorted narratives about Nigerians. These diplomats mislead both federal government and gullible Nigerians. They even mislead few among them who don’t have information and are not willing to listen to people on the ground because they were warned not to.

These corrupt and wicked civil servants sit on the carcasses of Nigerian murder victims and write false reports against them. The ministry of foreign affairs has at least on two occasions issued the wrong statement to the effect that the murder victims are criminals based on the report they received from the mission in South Africa.

Also recently the SSA to the President on diaspora and foreign affairs wrongly twitted that the fourteen Nigerians arrested in Rustenburg, North West province of South Africa were arrested for drug dealing after visiting the consulate general in Johannesburg. These were Nigerians arrested for public violence cos they were protesting against the killing of a Nigerian. How low can it go?

Our question to High Commissioner, Amb. Ahmed Ibeto and the Consul General Mr. Godwin Adama is: Is it part of your briefings to ensure that as many Nigerians as possible are killed in South Africa?
