Two communities in South Africa have told Nigerians to leave their territories latest Thursday.
The Nigeria Union in the country reportedly claimed on Wednesday.
The union’s President Ikechukwu Anyene was reported to have said the Klaafontein community, Extension 5, Johannesburg, directed landlords not to renew the rent of Nigerians in the area. The community is reported to have blamed Nigerians for the rise of illicit drug trade and prostitution.
The Nigeria union held series of meetings with the affected communities as well as police and local authorities on the recent threats to Nigerians.
We have also written reports on these incidents and sent to the Nigerian Mission and the South African police.
We recommended interventions before the June 16 deadline to the mission and we are waiting for their response.
The union is worried that any incident involving non -South Africans are attributed to Nigerians.
