By Kenneth Orusi, The Nigerian Voice, Asaba

The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has called on Nigerians in Diaspora particularly those living in South Africa to be law abiding, to remain vigilant and remember to protect themselves against the failed South Africa institution.

The body led by the Zone B Coordinator, Comrade Pedro Obi made the call in a press conference in Asaba, condemning in its entirety the xenophobic attack.

NANS frowned at the lukewarm attitude of the South Africa Government over the attack, appealing to the President Jacob Zuma to stop playing politics with the lives of innocent Nigerian with immediate effect

According to NANS, if not the intervention of Delta state, we had prepared to close down all businesses with South Africa interest in the region in response to the xenophobic attack.

We allowed reasoning to prevail after the intervention of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta state and security agencies, knowing well that most of the businesses have Nigerian interests and cannot put more Nigerian into untold hardship”.

The body also frowned at the snail pace handling of the xenophobic attack by Nigerian, demanding a swift response from the government to end the killings.
