Nigerians Attacked, Shops Looted In Fresh Xenophic Attacks

 According to confirmed reports, Nigerian owned businesses were targeted as some shops were vandalised and goods stolen in a recent Xenophobic attack which happened on Tuesday in Mpumalanga Province, South Africa.

It was gathered that about eight Nigerians were abducted by South Africans in Evander, north-west of Secunda in Mpumalanga province of the country, but have been released after government intervention.

Some others were beaten mercilessly during attack by South African residents.

Adetola Olubajo, president of the Nigerian union in South Africa, told NAN that the abducted Nigerians were released on Wednesday following pressure by the union on the South African authorities.

Olubajo said Nigerians in Evander had also informed the union about attacks on them in the province. “The mob arrested eight Nigerians and took them to an unknown destination.” Olubajo said the union had informed the Nigerian mission in South Africa about the incident.
