He stressed that the Africa Union (AU) should prevail on the South African Government to take immediate measures to protect and safeguard the lives and properties of African migrants and, indeed, all nationals resident in South Africa and ensure that real compensation are paid to the families of all who lost their family members and relations and also for the loss of properties.

While appealing to Nigerian youths not to react ignorantly against the South Africans living in Nigeria, it urged the Federal Government to do everything possible in ensuring lasting solution.

The organisation also berated the several killings by herdsmen and  Boko Haram in the country, especially killings in the North East of  Nigeria is unacceptable, several innocent souls has been sent to un-timely graves.

It however commended the Federal Government for the evacuation of Nigerians from South Africa, stressing that the South Africa Government should pay adequate compensation to victims. While appealing to Nigerian students to be very conscious and to be peace loving.
