The Federal Government is deeply worried over the killings of three Nigerians in South Africa.

The latest incident happened on the 14th and 17th of November, 2022.

The Consulate General of Nigeria in Johannesburg , had in a statement issued on Thursday, noted with sadness the latest reports of killings of Nigerians in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal (KZN).

Explaining further, it said the killings of Nigerians were a result due to an intra-community violence that had not been adequately managed.

The Mission, however, appealed for calm and restraint while efforts were made by the High Commission, Consulate General and South African authorities to curb the violence.

It also called on religious/traditional and community leaders to bring their spiritual and moral authority to bear on current efforts towards an amicable resolution of the issues.

It said: “The Consulate General of Nigeria is saddened by the latest reports of killings of Nigerians in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal (KZN).

“Preliminary accounts indicate that three Nigerians were shot and killed between 14th and 17th November 2022 due to intra-community violence that has not been adequately managed. This is a source of grave concern to the Mission and well-meaning Nigerians.”
