#Xenophobia – FG warns Nigerians not to engage in reprisal attacks


Following the recent Xenophobic attacks on Nigerians in South Africa,
the Federal Government has warned Nigerians against carrying out any reprisal attacks.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, made this statement while speaking to newsmen at a briefing in Abuja this morning, he said reprisals are hurting more Nigerian investors than any other group.

” We appeal to Nigerians who are angered by the xenophobic attacks on their compatriots in South Africa not to engage in reprisal attacks because such attacks hurt our own people more. We also want Nigerians to know that wrong videos and disinformation are being circulated on social media to inflame passion and distort the plight of Nigerians in South Africa.

“Nigerians should be wary of the purveyors of these wrong videos. We strongly warn hoodlums who may wish to hide under the peaceful protests by Nigerians to loot, maim and kill that the security agencies will apprehend and bring them to justice. And to opinion leaders, we ask that they be guarded in their comments” the minister said
