Miller called on the police to come to the rescue of Nigerians by protecting their lives and property.

“The union is monitoring the situation. We have not received any report of casualty on any Nigerian, but the situation is still tense because there are fears that the looting will resume in the night. We have also advised Nigerians in the area to adopt safety measures by being alert,’’ Miller said.

Xenophobic attacks on Nigerians in South Africa hit a high magnitude in 2016 but it had occurred in 2015, when a series of attacks were carried out on nationals of foreign countries.

In 2013, the Governments of Nigeria and South Africa signed a Memorandum of Understanding to reinforce diplomatic ties with the hope of preventing further attacks. At least no fewer than 184 Nigerians have been killed in xenophobic attacks between 2016 and this year. You may also like this; Buhari calls late Hauwa Liman’s father
