Foreign Affairs Minister, Geoffrey Onyeama
The South African Foreign Affairs Minister, Naledi Pandor was reported to have said that the country had temporarily closed its embassy in Nigeria, adding that there was no plan by her country to pay compensation to those affected by the attacks.
She said South Africa was in constant touch with Nigerian authorities to try to restore calm.
However, briefing State House correspondents on Thursday, Foreign Affairs Minister, Geoffrey Onyeama said, “We are not aware that the South African government has closed down its High Commission here in Abuja or its Consulate in Lagos.”
The Minister insisted that the President Muhammadu Buhari administration must go ahead to press for compensation on the attacks and destruction of the businesses of Nigerians in South Africa.
