South Africa President express worry over the killings of Nigerians in South Africa


The President of South Africa, Cyril Ramaphosa has said his government was very upset about the protracted killings of Nigerians in South Africa, noting that the trend had necessitated the call for a meeting of the leaders of both countries on how to promptly nip the matter in the bud.

Ramaphosa made this disclosure while answering questions from journalists after holding a bilateral talk with President Muhammadu Buhari on the sidelines of the ongoing seventh Tokyo International Conference for Africa Development (TICAD7) in Yokohama.

Also in a bilateral meeting with the president of Benin, Patrice Talon, President Muhammadu Buhari disclosed that the partial closure of Nigeria’s border with Benin Republic, was due to the massive smuggling activities, especially of rice, taking place on that corridor.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, explains the concerns raise by the Beninois President during the meeting with president Buhari.
