January 12, 2018 – 4 Nigerians In Coma As South African Taxi Drivers Attack Them In Rustenburg Over Rape & Drug Dealing Accusations

The Nigerian Union in South Africa say six guest houses owned by their members were burnt during attacks against Nigerians in Rustenburg, North West Province of South Africa.

Mr Paul Nwanedo, chairman of the union in the Province, told the NAN on the telephone from Rustenburg, on Thursday that the attackers beat a woman and her child.

“ These attacks began on Sunday. Four Nigerians are in critical condition in the hospital. We also received a report that the Taxi drivers also beat a Nigerian woman and her child.

“ We can also confirm that six guest houses belonging to our people were burnt by the drivers.

“ We have not recorded any incident today. We have advised our people to remain indoors and ensure their safety.

“ As we speak, stakeholders comprising the police, taxi drivers and senior government officials are still in a meeting. The union was not allowed to be part of the meeting,” Nwanedo said.

The chairman said that the union was still taking stock of losses by Nigerians and would communicate to appropriate Federal government representatives in South Africa.

NAN learned that the taxi drivers went on the rampage following allegations that Nigerians sold drugs to a gang that attacked their members.

They also alleged that a Nigerian abducted and raped a 16-year-old South African girl pictured below.

Nwando said the allegations were false and spurious.

“ Our investigation so far showed that these allegations are false. No Nigerian has been arrested for alleged abduction or rape. The allegation of drugs selling to the gang is also untrue,” he said.

  1. Who is the freaking ambassador representing us in that forsaken country.why wont they recall such person who has recorded numerous killings and property destructions.we need boycott their businesses.shoprite and good for nothing mtn.awaiting the moulding governor to put up their vice president statue

  2. I don’t understand why we have foreign Embassy and assigned some inept Diplomats there just to be getting paid for doing nothing. That is one of the reasons why we always fail to address our issues.

    Nigerians are being killed on a daily basis and Nigerian government kept mum as if that is not a big issue. Some Nigerians are still stranded in Libya where most of them were being sold out as slaves and their organs were forcefully removed yet! our Government are still negotiating when the plane will be available to remove the last batch of its citizens.

    We need to change our ways in handling some critical issues otherwise other Countries will continue to look down on us.

  3. where there is a smoke there is fire.Why Africa as a whole people are against Nigerians why not Moroccans,Mozambicans, Egyptians an many more. People don’t have respect especially most of foreigners living here in South Africa they do things which they not do to their countries. I feel so bad with things being done in South Africa.Especially the issue of drugs is there any solution to bring down this gigantic event of drugs in South Africa. I come with solution I think if we can change our country from South Africa to Azania I think we can hav
    e a great respect from vary countries. I like Nigerians but I hate their behavior .Wherever did you met with a Nigerian working nowhere so it’s clear that they are drug loads.People it’s very sadness story to found your child being used with Nigerians as a whore.School children here in South Africa most of them they are now drug addicted they pray for Nigerians to gave them drug. Community let us unite to come over with this issue it’s not xenophobia attack but it’s community restore order thanks
