Nigerian Senate asks FG to drag South African king before ICC

The Senate on Wednesday urged President Goodluck Jonathan to recall the  Nigeria’s High Commissioner in South Africa, Ambassador S.S Yusuf, to protest the current xenophobic attacks on Nigerians by some indigenes of the Southern African country.

The upper legislators stated this as part of their resolutions on a motion moved on behalf of all members by the Senate Leader, Victor Ndoma – Egba.

The senators also called on the Federal Government to drag the Zulu King, Goodwill Zwelithini, before the International Criminal Court over his alleged role in the unfortunate development.

The federal lawmakers condemned the actions of the South Africans and asked its committee on foreign affairs, to  summon the Minister of Foreign Affairs,  Mr. Aminu Wali, to brief them on the situation and measures being taken to safeguard the lives of Nigerians in South African.

They urged the federal government to pressurise the South African government to bring the perpetrators of this evil act to justice and ensure adequate protection of Nigerians and their investments in that country.
