Two more Nigerians have been killed South Africa within 48 hours.
Special Assistant to the President on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora, Mrs Abike Dabiri Erewa, said 116 Nigerians have been killed through extrajudicial means in the past two years in South Africa.
“The barbaric behaviour of the perpetrators is not only unacceptable, but also calls for urgent attention by diplomatic authorities in Nigeria and South Africa,” she said, reiterating President Muhammadu Buhari’s call to Nigerians to avoid crimes such as drug peddling which attracts stiff penalties, sometimes death.
Dabiri-Erewa urged the South African government to ensure that justice prevailed by carrying out investigation and bring the culprit to book.
Those killed in the past days includes Ikechukwu Edmond on November 11 and Eluka Agu on November 13 in Johannesburg.
Last October 11, two Nigerians, Jelili Omoyele and Olamilekan Badmus were killed same day.
