The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), has threatened to shut down the South African Embassy in Nigeria and businesses owned by its country including DSTV and MTN, over the xenophobic killings of Nigerians in South Africa.
In a statement made available to newsmen on yesterday in Abuja, the NANS President, Comrade Danielson Akpan, condemned the recent killing of the deputy director general of Chartered Insurance Institute of Nigeria (CIIN), Mrs Elizabeth Ndubuisi, who was found dead in her room at Emperor’s Palace Casino, Hotel and Convention Centre, Johannesburg, South Africa.
An earlier report by the chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa, had assured Nigerians that everything would be done to unravel the death of Elizabeth Ndubuisi, a Nigerian national who was said to have been strangled.
But the NANS President threatened to mobilise the over 40 million Nigerian students to shut down South African businesses in Nigeria to protest the incessant killings of Nigerians in the country.
“The rascality of South Africans has got to an alarming state. As at today, official record of Nigerians killed in South Africa has risen to 127.
“These are human beings. These are Nigerians. Unfortunately, this figure is just the confirmed and official figure, not to talk about the ones swept under the carpets.
“Just on the 23rd June, 2019, Mrs Elizabeth Ndubuisi was strangulated in her hotel room (Emperor’s Palace Hotel & Convention Centre) Johannesburg, South Africa.
“She’s the Deputy Director General, Chartered Insurance Institute of Nigeria.
“Consequently, we shall be shutting down all South African reflections in Nigeria-Embassy, DSTV, SHOPRITE, MTN and many more.
“Since South Africans do not want us in their country, they should leave our land,” he said.
