Okoli said: “Today (yesterday), there was an attack on Nigerian-own businesses in Witbank Mpumalanga. This attack happened around 9 a.m. I drove with the CG in his car to the province where we engaged the police and the Nigerian community in a meeting inside the police conference room.

“Our meeting was very engaging and frank. We went around the affected shops and businesses and we also visited those admitted in the hospital for the injuries they sustained.

“In the meeting with the police, we informed them that it was totally uncceptable to us as a nation that people should not have been allowed to take the laws into their hands unless the country has become lawless. We demanded the protection of the lives of our people in the province and elsewhere in the country.

“This was not a xenophobic attack but criminality masterminded by the taxi drivers under the guise of fighting crime.”
