The Nigerian Consul-General in South Africa, Ambassador Uche Ajulu-Okeke, has said that Nigerians lost over twenty-one million Naira in the on-going xenophobic attacks in South Africa.
The Consul-General said that the loss include looted shops, burnt shops, two burnt mechanic workshops, eleven burnt cars and two stolen cars, among others.
She said that in Durban, two of the three Nigerians who were injured during attacks have been treated and discharged from the hospital.
The consul-general said that she would go back to Durban to assess the situation on ground and meet with the provincial authority on security of Nigerians in that province.
She added that she has visited the site of the attacks in Johannesburg to assess the damage and it was enormous.
Ambassador Uche Ajulu-Okeke said the Nigerian mission would meet with all Nigerian Union chapters in the nine provinces of South Africa to find strategies on how to check the attacks.
