Controversial Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode on Sunday called on the Federal Government to expel all South Africans from Nigeria.

Fani-Kayode spoke in the wake of fresh Xenophobic attacks and protest in South Africa as the citizens demanded that foreigners should leave their country.

After watching a trending video in which the South Africans stormed the streets demanding foreigners to leave, Fani-Kayode said “This is happening right now in Johannesburg, South Africa. Well organised and well armed South African mobs and killer squads are marching in the streets calling for all foreigners to leave and looking for Nigerians to kill.

“How long do we have to put up with this state-sponsored violence and extreme provocation? Will we turn the other cheek forever? Who will defend mother Nigeria and who will fight for us? Is our blood so easy to spill and are our lives so cheap? What is our government doing? What are our Armed Forces there for if not to protect our lives and defend our honor and people?

“The South African Government has openly encouraged and openly supported this great evil and the mass murder of our compatriots! Enough is enough! We cannot be expected not to retaliate in the streets of Nigeria! You cannot kill our people and expect yours to go free in our shores or for your corporations to have peace and security in our nation.”

According to Fani-Kayode, for every action there is a reaction, saying that is the law of nature and the world, which said “if you shed innocent blood it will come back to you!”

“I call for the expulsion of all South African citizens from Nigeria, the nationalisation of all South African companies and corporations that are operating in Nigeria, the breaking up of diplomatic ties with South Africa, a recall and relocation of all our citizens that live and reside in South Africa back home to Nigeria and, if the targeting and killing of our citizens does not stop, an apology tendered and full compensation paid by the South African Government, a declaration of total war with South Africa,” he added.

  • This guy has forgotten he is no longer a senior special adviser again. Untill all Nigerian in south africa decide to come home any reprisal will not be good. If FFK wanted street protest, let him champion it. Not sitting at home and doing social media protest.

  • Nigeria nation is begging for leadership, thus i call on Buhari's led federal government to show leadership for once, the federal government MUST act decisively now with tact and precision.

    South Africans have pounded and hounded Nigerians residing in South Africa beyond acceptable and tolerable limit.

    I pray and hope that one day Nigeria nation would be led by a forthright, focused and robust leader.

    If the federal government handle the xenophobic attacks on Nigerians by South Africans with the same zeal, commitment and tact as they did with RUGA, there is no doubt that south African government would have impressed on their citizens to stop the wanton and reckless attacks on Nigerians.

    RUGA AND NOT ABOUT NIGERIANS?What a misplaced priority. What a government. What an aimless government. What a political pestilence. What a waste of political space. What a BIG TIME FAILURE. WHAT A HUGE MISTAKE.

    What a situation. I take a stroll. Nonsense.

    • I have not seen a stack illiterate of your caliber since I was born nor heard of it before now. You shall die untimely like the ones killed by South Africans. Your generation shall never be free from slavery in Jesus name, Amen since you support the killing of Nigerians and property looting

  • I am beginning to believe that @pmnewsnigeria is on the payroll of Femi Fani Kayode and his likes, every tweet and facebook post from this man not matter how senile, unhinged and unpatriotic they may be always become breaking news on you page. You guys need to become journalists once again if it is still possible.
