This evening a member of the Lagos stage House of Assembly representing Kosofe Constitute 1,Hon. Tunde Braimoh Condemned the attacks on by South Africans.
The lawmaker said” The senseless , mindless and reckless mass murder tagged xenophobia being perpetrated by some barbaric , crude and raw South Africans in their homeland calculated and orchestrated against their brother and sister Africans is to say the least sad , mad and terribly bad. It is unconscionable, anachronistic, and repugnant to any known Human order or system. It is therefore unacceptable and should be loudly condemned by all agents of civilization worldwide.”

Adding that” It is but a paradoxical irony that the same South Africa for which many of us Nigerians contributed our widows mite and for which we were even ready to lay down our lives is now our albatross.”
“Even assuming without conceding that the Nigerians targeted for attacks are illicit traders and dealers as they allege , is there no law in that country to curb criminal dealings ? Any society where the rule of law has failed and where self help prevails is akin to the Stone Age where life was brutish , nasty and shortish.
The Government Of South Africa is also a crass failure with its lack lustre and phlegmatic response. It leaves too much to be desired,” Braimoh stated.
He advised that”The Nigerian Government on its part has responded quite well in the circumstances but it needs to follow the matter up to a logical conclusion whereby all victims dead and alive are adequately compensated and the criminal murderers and arsonists brought to book.”
The second term lawmaker , Braimoh appealed to” the irate Nigerian populace however need to be more introspective and calculated in spite of the infuriating and exasperating temptations and frustrations. By the indigenization laws of Nigeria, substantial interests in almost all commercial and industrial concerns are owned by Nigerian investors even if they buy into world renown brands as franchisees Therefore destroying businesses perceived to be South African is simply destroying our own properties.
Our Law enforcement agents should also tread softly and disperse unlawful assemblies with non-lethal weapons.
“Finally all regional and world bodies especially the AU and the UN are challenged to rise against this re enactment of savagery and sardonic sadism being championed by some unscrupulous South Africans,” He charged the world bodies.
