The Ogun and Adamawa state chapters of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) have started the protest against South African companies in protest of the increasing rate of Xenophobic attacks against Nigerians in South Africa.
Recall that the association issued an ultimatum to South African companies to leave the country when speaking at conference hosted by the Director of the Diaspora Commission, Abike Dabiri-Erewa.
In Abeokuta, the Ogun state capital, the protesting students led by National Public Relations Officer of NANS, Azeez Adeyemi, carried placards with different inscriptions.
In Adamawa state, the protesting students started the picketing at the DSTv office on Bank Road and then matched over to the Aliyu Mustapha Way where Stanbic Bank is located.
At the Stanbic Bank, the National Financial Secretary of NANS, Danladi Jonah, who spoke on behalf of the protesting students, said the bank branch would remain shut throughout Thursday and Friday as directed by NANS’ national leadership.
“We are giving South African businesses in Nigeria seven days to relocate,” he said.
