The Federal Government has summoned the South African High Commissioner to Nigeria and protested the xenophobic attacks on Nigerians living in South Africa.


The Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Khadija Ibrahim told Lulu Mguni that the South African Government must put an end to the attacks.


Yesterday armed policemen sealed off South African Mobile Telephone Company, MTN, after protesters tried to storm its headquarters in Abuja.


About 116 Nigerians had been killed in South Africa in the last two years while business outfits and properties worth billions of dollars and owned by Nigerians had been destroyed by the xenophobic South Africans.
