The Nigeria students union body, National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, have on Thursday shutdown MTN Kaduna office over xenophobic attacks and killings of 118 Nigerians in the last two years, Daily Nigeria is reporting.
Speaking on the shutdown of Kaduna office, Mr. Dominic Philip, the association Director, say the students carried out the action to send a signal to South Africa that Nigerians are not happy the way their brothers are been killed in South Africa by their citizens.
Philip pointed out at how Nigeria played active role in the South Africa liberation struggle, and wondered why the county will be killing Nigerians.
Philips say NANS will no longer tolerate the diplomatic nature the Nigerian state adopts in addressing the killings of Nigeria in south Africa.
“Available record has shown that the levels of attacks on Nigerians is on astronomical rise, with the recent killing of Nigerian by South Africans, on July 20 increasing the number to 118 in the last two years.
“Out of this number, 13 were reportedly killed by South African Police in an extra-Judicial manner.
