The Deputy Minority Whip warned that the unceasing and indefensible killing of Nigerians in South Africa will no longer be tolerated as Nigerians are already running out of patience with the increasing scourge, adding that the xenophobic attacks had reached the tipping point.

"Nigerians in South Africa are living in panic and fear of more attacks by South Africans. Information available  revealed that shops and properties of Nigerians were damaged and burnt during the attacks,” he said.

He noted  that intervention from government of South Africa was urgently needed, especially as the situation could easily spread further.
