The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari has dispatched a Special Envoy who is on his way to South Africa.
This followed the recent unfortunate xenophobic attacks on Nigerians and other nationals in South Africa,
According to a statement signed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokes person, Ferdinand Nwonye, the Special Envoy will be received on arrival by the High Commissioner of Nigeria to South Africa together with the Consul General and they will proceed for crucial meetings with high-level South African officials on all aspects of the xenophobic attacks on Nigerians.
The Special Envoy and the High Commissioner are expected to provide President Muhammadu Buhari with a comprehensive briefing on the situation in South Africa and on the outcome of their meetings.
The Ministry also stated that the Mission in South Africa has authoritatively informed that no Nigerian life was lost during the latest crisis. The general public should therefore disregard social media clips claiming otherwise.
