Xenophobic attack: Why Nigeria will retaliate – Interior Minister, Dambazau













The Minister of Interior, Lt. Gen. Abdulrahman Dambazau, rtd, has said that if South Africa keeps making things difficult for Nigeria, the only option would be to retaliate.
He said South African authorities were not doing much to quell the endless extra-judicial killings and xenophobic attacks on Nigerians in the country.
The Minister reminded South Africa of the principle of reciprocity of action in international diplomacy.
He said his ministry would collaborate with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Consular Services.
“In the event that the South African authority continues to make things difficult for us, we will have no choice than to make things difficult for them too,” he said.
“I am going to have another meeting with the minister after now to sort out all those issues.”
He added, “But from what I could gather, most of the Nigerians in South African prisons were convicted of drugs, fraud and prostitution. As at now, Nigeria has no prisoner agreement with South Africa.
“That is an issue that we are going to discuss with the Home Affairs minister but one of the things that came up as the result of this xenophobic saga is to know the number of Nigerians in South Africa.”
“We have suggested that the Nigeria Union of South Africa should carry out a kind of registration of Nigerians living in each province, since the association has a presence in almost all the provinces in the country.
“Then take all the names of those registered to the Nigeria High Commission in Pretoria, so that if anything goes wrong, the mission can be in the know
