Nigeria is set to recall its High Commissioner to South Africa, Kabiru Bala, over the raging xenophobic attacks on Nigerians living in the country.
A presidential source who did not want to be named disclosed disclosed to THISDAY Wednesday that Bala would be recalled to the country for necessary consultation over the mindless killings of Nigerians as well as the destruction of their businesses in South Africa.
The presidency had opted to recall Bala to receive a proper situation report from him over the attacks with a view to helping the federal government take a firm decision on the attacks.

THERE are indications that President Muhammadu Buhari may any moment recall the Nigeria High Commissioner, to  South Africa, Ambassador Kabiru Bala.

The move according to a reliable Presidency source was for the government to have consultation with him over the xenophobic attacks of Nigerians in South Africa.

The source who spoke to journalists on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak on the matter also hinted that Nigeria has also pulled out of World Economic Forum on Africa in Capetown, South Africa, scheduled to hold between September 4-6 over the xenophobic attacks.

The Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo was to represent Nigeria at the World Economic forum.

It will be recalled that some other African countries like the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Rwanda and Malawi had earlier announced their pulling out of the event.

Presidents Paul Kagame (Rwanda), Felix Tshisekedi (DRC) and Peter Mutharika (Malawi) have all withdrawn from the event.

According to the source, Nigeria had also demanded for full compensation for the victims of the attacks.

The decision was reached after President Buhari, Vice President Osinbajo and Foreign Affairs Minister, Geoffrey Onyeama, had brainstormed on the unwarranted and provocative attacks of Nigeria in South Africa.

It will also be recalled that Nigeria’s Foreign Affairs Minister, Onyeama had on Tuesday at a joint news briefing with the South African High Commissioner to Nigeria, Mr. Bobby Moroe, insisted that the victims of the xenophobic attacks should be compensated.

He also ruled out the possibility of Nigeria government retaliating the attacks on her nationals in South Africa.

Onyeama in the briefing said, “In the first place, we must address the issue of compensation. There has to be accountability and there has to be responsibility for compensating all those Nigerians that have suffered loss and we are going to absolutely push forward.”

The attacks, looting and burning of businesses allegedly owned by Nigeria in South Africa had on Wednesday morning, sparked off protest in Abuja as some irate youths stormed a Shoprite mall in Abuja to protest the attack on Nigerians in South Africa.

This led to traffic gridlock in some streets in the city Centre though the Police were prompt to rescue the situation.

Africa should actually give diplomatic and economic sanction to South Africa to teach that country that its conduct is totally UNAFRICAN.
Already, some African countries are beginning to copy their wicked and selfish behavior, and that cannot be good for the spirit of African brotherhood.

South Africa makes BY FAR more money from the rest of Africa than Africa makes from South Africa.
The little that Africans make from south Africa, that country wickedly covets, attacks and kills them for it.
At a point Africa should say enough is enough.
If South Africa is expelled from the African Union today, the continent won't miss or lose a damn thing!

South Africans have shown the rest of Africa that they are not real Africans. UN and others should do something about Zenophobia or else the end result won't be palatable for them.
