Stating that the mob alleged that a Nigerian abducted a South African girl and raped her.
The Nigerian Community in South Africa said on Saturday that a mob destroyed four shops and several houses belonging to their members at Krugersdorp, near Johannesburg.
“The South Africans attacked our homes and shops, destroyed all we have. Many Nigerians suffered severe injuries during the attack. We have left our homes for safety because they are regrouping to attack us again.”
Calling out to the Government and general public, James urged the Nigerian mission to urgently intervene before the mob kills a Nigerian.
According to him, the safety of Nigerians in Krugersdorp is no more guaranteed because there is no help.
Mr Adetola Olubajo, President of the union, said that the situation in the area was bad.
