The National Association of Nigerian Students yesterday stormed the offices of three South African Companies including MTN office in Abeokuta, Ogun State capital in protest of series of Xenophobic attacks on Nigerians living in South Africa.
Recall that the Federal Government of Nigeria had this week warned that it could no longer tolerate xenophobic attacks on Nigerians in South Africa.
The protesting students also touched the offices of MultiChoice DSTV and Stanbic IBTC branch, all in Oke-Ilewo, Abeokuta.
The National Public Relations Officer of NANS, Azeez Adeyemi led the protesting students who carried placards with different inscriptions such as “South Africans have declared war; Enough is Enough; Nigerian Students can no longer keep quiet while South Africans kill Nigerians and All South African business interests must leave Nigeria now among others.
According to reports, while the students successfully locked the offices of MTN , MultiChoice DSTV in Oke-Ilewo, they failed to lock up a branch of the Stanbic IBTC branch in the area as apolicemen, the e management staff and other security waded them off.
Adeyemi who spoke to journalists at the scene of the protest, said their action would send a strong signal to the South African government over the xenophobic attacks on Nigerians.
He disclosed that the protest would continue in other states of the federation, saying that NANS could no longer fold its arm and watch Nigerians being killed in South Africa
