President of the 8th senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki has condemned the reprisal attacks being witnessed in various cities across Nigerian.
He took to his Twitter page to condemn the attacks.
His tweet reads “Videos of Nigerians engaging in reprisal attacks in Nigeria against businesses believed, in many cases erroneously, to be owned by South Africans are disheartening and disturbing. As a people, we cannot allow ourselves to slip into the abyss of inhumanity and participate in the same actions we condemn.”
“I appeal to Nigerians to show restraint and demonstrate maturity at this time. We must all say No to #XenophobicAttacks #NoToHate #NoToDestruction”
