The youth, who marched from Zoo Road to Audu Bako Secretariat along the State Road, carried placards with various inscriptions condemning the action on Nigerians.

The protesters, who called on the South African government to bring an end to the attacks, said they would not fold their arms while Nigerians are being attacked and killed.

Spokesman for the protesters and Chairman of Joint Action Campaign Against Xenophobic Attack, Khalid Sanusi urged the Federal Government to take urgent steps to check the ugly trend.

Sanusi said the youth would continue to show their anger to such attacks and picket companies owned by South Africa in Nigeria, until measures were taken to end the attacks.

He attributed the high rate of unemployment in South Africa as the major reason behind the xenophobic attacattacks, and advised the South African government to tackle the issue.

“It must create job opportunities to the teeming number of unemployed youths in their country,” he said, stressing however that there was no justification for attacking others simply because of the failure of South African leaders.
