Nigerians Implored To Adopt Safety Measures as South Africans Protest On Monday

The Nigerian Community in South Africa has on Sunday implored its members to stay safe by adopting some safety measures ahead of the planned protest against foreigners by South Africans.

A leaflet circulated on Sunday tagged “ Mogale City Monday Shut Down” said that there would be a protest against crime, drugs and human trafficking in Krugersdorp on Monday.

The leaflet read “lets unite and reclaim our city from crime, drugs and human trafficking. Clean Krugersdorp, No one goes to work, No child goes to school, No transport allowed to move,”.

Mr Adetola Olubajo, the President of Nigerian Union, South Africa, disclosed on the telephone from Pretoria, that criminal elements could take advantage of the protest to cause trouble.

“We call on our people to stay away from the areas as criminal elements within the community will take advantage of the protest.

“We implore the organisers of the planned protest to do it within the ambit of the law and be very vigilant of criminal elements that may take advantage of the march to loot, destroy property and shops of foreigners,” he said.

Olubajo said that the union had zero tolerance for crime because it affects everybody in the society.

“Those engaging in drug peddling and child prostitution, and those attacking foreign nationals and looting their property are all perpetrating crime,” he said.

The president urged the police to be proactive adding that prompt response would assist the people.

“The host government at the highest level should swiftly intervene to avoid further loss of lives and property,” Olubajo said.

We reported on Friday that a 27-year old Nigerian Ebuka Okori was killed by South African policemen in Durban.
