The Senate has declared its intention to probe the Xenophobic attacks on Nigerians in South Africa.
The Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, has summoned the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, demanding the names of Nigerians killed in South Africa.
Lawan made the call on Monday during the screening of the immediate past Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffery Onyema, as nominee.
The Senate President, while addressing the issue, affirmed that he would take it up with the South African parliament.
“The Senate has written to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs requesting for all names of Nigerians killed in South Africa.
“We are going to take it up with the South African parliament.
“It is no longer acceptable,” Lawan stated.
Recall that in the last few years, several Nigerians have been sent to an early grave in major parts of the country as a result of Xenophobic attacks.
The most recent one was the gruesome murder of Ndubuisi Chukwu, an Insurance top shot who was strangled to death in her hotel room while she was in the country for a conference.
