Govt to govt efforts have failed, Shehu Sani proffers solution to killings of Nigerians in South Africa

Former lawmaker, Senator Shehu Sani, has proffered a solution to the frequent killings of Nigerians in South Africa xenophobic attacks.

The lawmaker who said government to government approach has failed to end the increasing killings of Nigerian nationals living in the country advised corporate organisations owned by South Africans operating in Nigeria to step in where government’s efforts have failed.

His suggestion is coming a day after the Nigerian Senate fumed over the number of Nigerians murdered in South Africa which has risen to 127 in three and a half years.

The Red Chamber had warned the South African government to halt the frequent killings of Nigerians by its citizens to avoid grave consequences.

The President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, who issued the warning at plenary on Wednesday, warned that the South African government must extend due respect to Nigeria and should not take the good gesture towards it for granted.

He tweeted:
