The Federal Government on Wednesday declared that it had drawn battle line with South Africa over xenophobic attacks on Nigerians.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, stated this when he addressed State House correspondents after a closed doors with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Onyeama regretted that the reports had distorted the situation and impacted on the federal government response on the incident.
According to Onyeama, a red line has been drawn between Nigeria and South Africa over the lingering attacks, noting that African countries have built consensus against the attacks.
The minister confirmed that the Ambassador of Nigeria to South Africa would soon be recalled for consultation, adding “Enough is enough – we are going to address it once and for all this time. This is the position of government.’’
