The Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Nigerians In Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Hon. Abike Erewa made this known on Wednesday while briefing journalists in Abuja.
The Nigerian and South African presidents will also discuss bilateral issues that will strengthen the relationship between the two countries.
Abike-Dabiri said that as soon as President Buhari’s new cabinet is constituted, the ministers of Foreign Affairs for both country will also meet.
She said ”Really it’s pathetic, it’s sad. As we said before, until about 2016, we have had 118 Nigerians killed in South Africa. Between 2018 and today, 88 Nigerians have been killed in South Africa. Out of this 88, 25 were cases of Nigerians killing Nigerians and we have had the case of Mrs. Elizabeth Chukwue who was murdered in her hotel room.”
She added: ”Eight policemen are currently being investigated in South Africa for their involvement in killings against Nigerians, that investigation must come to an end and there must be consequences for their actions.
”The two policemen that did this to Tayo are already being investigated by investigating body that deals with police officers in South Africa, we must know the outcome of the investigation.
“We also must know who killed Mrs. Elizabeth Chukwu who went for a conference and died in her hotel room.
”We know that every country has its own challenges, we have ours and they have theirs. But killing other people is not the solution to anything. If a Nigerian commits a crime you deal with the person.
”And like Tayo said, we just have to put an end to xenophobia in Africa. It is a shame that in the 21st century we are talking about Africans killing Africans, rather than talking of Africans going to the moon, doing inventions, taking over the world. This cannot be called to happen, ” she added.

National Broadcast: PDP Slams Buhari Over ‘Disappointing, Empty’ Speech – PDP
Recall that Buhari in his speech called for an end to the protest, adding that his government had already accepted and started implementing demands of the protesters.
He, however, failed to acknowledge the shooting of protesters by soldiers of the Nigerian Army at the Lekki Toll Gate on Tuesday night.
Reacting in a statement on Thursday night by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbodinyan, the PDP said Buhari’s address was depressing and failed empathy test.
The party appealed to Nigerians, particularly the youth, to remain calm and allow a return to normal life in the collective quest for peaceful co-existence in the overall interest of the nation.
