Three Nigerians are among other foreign nationals that suffered from fresh xenophobic attacks on foreigners in different locations of Witbank, Mpumanlaga Province, South Africa.
The national spokesperson for the Nigeria Union, South Africa, Mr. Odefa Ikele, told the News Agency of Nigeria that the attacks started in the early hours of Tuesday.
Tuesday’s attacks come despite efforts by Presidents Muhammadu Buhari and Cyril Ramaphosa to ensure they found amicable and lasting solution to xenophobia in South Africa.
“Groups made up of community members and taxi drivers went to different areas in Witbank attacking foreign-owned businesses and foreigners.
“Three Nigerians are injured, but no death case for now. Some of our nationals are seeking refuge at Witbank Police Station,’’ he said.
