Xenophobic Attacks: Buhari, Osinbajo, Onyeama Meet


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.

A presidential source confided in the News Agency of Nigeria (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 to President Cyril Ramaphosa of South Africa his deep concerns over the unabated attacks on Nigerian citizens and property in South Africa since August 29.

South Africans commenced fresh attacks, looting and burning of businesses and properties belonging to Nigerians and other nationals and in the process killed three people. (NAN)
