The Nigeria Union in South Africa, on Wednesday guaranteed that two groups in the nation, have requested that Nigerians leave their domains. Leader of the union, Ikechukwu Anyene, said the Kuruman people group in Northern Cape Province gave Nigerians till Thursday to take off.
He also said the Klaafontein community, Extension 5, Johannesburg, directed landlords not to renew the rent of Nigerians in the area, blaming them for the rise of illicit drug trade and prostitution.The Nigeria union held series of meetings with the affected communities as well as police and local authorities on the recent threats to Nigerians.
We have also written reports on these incidents and sent to the Nigerian Mission and the South African police. We recommended interventions before the June 16 deadline to the mission and we are waiting for their response.The union is worried that any incident involving non -South Africans are attributed to Nigerians,” Anyene said.
