    Federal Government Should Sanction South Africa For Barring Compensation To Nigerian Victims of Xenophobic Attacks Says Inibehe Effiong.
    It is extremely disappointing that South Africa ruled out payment of compensation to Nigerians affected by recent xenophobic attacks and Nigeria must mobilize effective sanctions, constitutional lawyer and human rights activist, Mr. Inibehe Effiong has said.
    “I fully support legal redress against South Africa. It is regrettable and unacceptable that the South African government has ruled out paying compensation to Nigerians and other African migrants who are victims of the xenophobic violence,” Effiong told The Nation.
    “The federal government should now deploy maximum diplomatic pressure and reciprocal actions against South Africa. We cannot accept this sort of criminality.
    “I do not believe that South African companies in Nigeria should be nationalized, but that will only be necessary if we end bilateral relations with South Africa.
    “The federal government should impose punitive tariffs on all South African companies in Nigeria.
    “While I support all actions taken so far by the government, I believe that more can be done.
    “Let the government galvanise multilateral efforts across the continent with the aim of isolating South Africa.
    “They must be made to pay a heavy price. South Africans must be made to realise that their behaviour is intolerable,” Effiong said.
