Xenophobia : No Compensation For Affected Victims! - South Africa Defies Nigerians

Following the recent xenophobia attacks resulting to vandalism of properties and loss of lives, Nigeria’s demand for compensation for its
citizens who incurred losses in xenophobic
attacks has been ruled down by South Africa
 Nigeria is pressing for victims of the wanton
attacks and killings to be fully compensated,
but S/Africa says payment of compensation is
not in its laws
Foreign affairs minister, Geoffrey Onyeama,
says Nigeria will take necessary measures and
do whatever needs to be done to ensure that
victims are compensated
 The minister insisted that the federal
government will hold the government of South
Africa to account
Nigeria’s request for compensation for its
citizens who incurred losses in xenophobic
attacks has been ruled down by South Africa.
The South African foreign affairs minister,
Naledi Pandor, stated on Thursday, September
5, that payment of compensation was not in
the country’s law, The Nation reports.
Legit.ng notes that Nigeria is pressing for
victims of the wanton attacks and killings to be
fully compensated.

The federal government has already dispatched
an envoy to Pretoria, as it seeks diplomatic
means to solve the matter.
The president of the Nigerian Union in South
Africa, Adeola Olubajo, disclosed that about
200 Nigerians have been killed in persistent
attacks over the years, and many more have
lost goods and properties worth millions of
dollars.
The need for compensation for victims was
reiterated by Nigeria's minister of foreign
affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, in a chat with
newsmen at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on
Thursday.
He said: “Our citizens there have suffered a lot.
It is the responsibility of the government to
ensure that they are compensated and we will
take measures necessary and do whatever we
have to do to ensure that they are
compensated.”
Before that, Onyeama had stated on Tuesday,
September 3: “Full compensation has to be
paid because as we have discovered from
previous experience, a lot of these Nigerians
lost their property and it is a long drawn out
process and very often are not compensated
for it.
