Mr Ikechukwu Anyene, President, Nigeria Union, South Africa has confirmed attacks and looting of Nigerian-owned businesses in Pretoria West on Saturday.
“As we speak, five buildings with Nigerian businesses, including a church have been looted and burned by South Africans. One of the buildings is a mechanic garage with 28 cars under repairs, with other vital documents, were burned during the attack. Also, the pastor of the church was wounded and is in the hospital receiving treatment,” he said.
He also said the union received information that there will be xenophobic attacks against foreigners on Feb. 22 and Feb. 23.
“We began taking precautionary measures when the incident took place today. The attack in Pretoria West is purely xenophobic and criminal because they loot the shops and homes before burning them. These attacks should not be allowed to continue because it is a big setback” he said.
