“These are human beings, these are Nigerians. Unfortunately, this figure is just confirmed an official figure, not to talk about the ones swept under the carpet.

“On June 23, Mrs Elizabeth Ndubuisi was strangulated in her hotel room (Emperor’s Palace Hotel & Convention Centre) in Johannesburg, South Africa. She’s the Deputy Director General of Chartered Insurance Institute of Nigeria (CIIN).

“Consequently, we shall be shutting down all South African reflections in Nigeria: Embassy, DSTV, SHOPRITE, MTN and many more.

“Since South Africans do not want us in their country, they should leave our land.”
