Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, has condemned the incessant killings of Nigerians in South Africa.

Lawan warned that further killing would no longer be tolerated.

Speaking while hosting South African High Commission to Nigeria, Bobby Moroe, Lawan noted that this is the era of social media where the corpse of a victim may spark violence that may go beyond the control of the government.

His words:

“We in the parliament must speak and prevent any further killings. These killings must stop. This is the era of social media where the corpse of a victim may spark violence that may go beyond the control of the government.

“The South African government must as a matter of urgency do whatever it takes to protect the lives and property of Nigerians living there, just as Nigerian government remain committed to the safety of South Africans residing here and their investments.

I believe we have faced enough, we will no longer take it anymore. We want to write the names of Nigerians killed, and the South African parliament must act fast to put a stop to this menace. Over the years, 118 Nigerians have been killed, while 13 out of these were killed by South African Police.”
