Buhari, Osinbajo, Onyeama Meet Over Xenophobic Attacks


With anger over the recent xenophobic attacks against Nigerians in South Africa almost reaching boiling point, President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday met behind closed doors with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr Jeoffrey Onyeama at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The President’s Personal Assistant on New Media, Bashir Ahmed, posted the pictures of the meeting on his twitter handle.

A presidential source confided in NAN that the agenda of the meeting, which is currently ongoing, would include the ongoing xenophobic attacks against Nigerians in South Africa.

Buhari had on September 3 dispatched a Special Envoy to convey his deep concerns to President Cyril Ramaphosa of South Africa over the unabated attacks on Nigerian citizens and property in South Africa since August 29.

Reports recently flooded the social as well as traditional media that South Africans have commenced fresh attacks, looting and burning of businesses and properties belonging to Nigerians and other nationals with three people so far killed in the process.
