Senate President Ahmad

Senate president Ahmed Lawan has reiterated his commitment to ending the senseless killings of Nigerians in South Africa.

The Senate president made this known during the screening of the former Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr Geoffrey Onyeama at the Senate Chamber on Monday, in Abuja.

He said, “I reiterated my earlier call for adequate measures that must be put in place to the halt the incessant killing of Nigerians in South Africa.”

Mr. Lawan says the killings will continue if diplomatic steps are not taken, and that the commitment extends not just to the lives of Nigerians in South Africa but elsewhere in the world.

He said, “I’m of the view that unless necessary diplomatic steps are taken, we’ll not only be talking about the killing and molestation of Nigerians in South Africa, but other countries as well.”

“When the South African High Commissioner to Nigeria paid me a courtesy visit few weeks ago, I made it very clear to him that Nigeria will no longer tolerate the killing of her citizens in South Africa. Even if Nigerians commit crimes, killing them should not be the first option, ” he added.

“ I have written to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. I have asked them to furnish us with names of Nigerians killed in South Africa so far. We are going to write to the South African Government and we will put an end to these killings. ”
