The Federal Government has asked the South African Government to investigate and punish those involved in the killing of a Nigerian in Johannesburg in December last year.
It also called on Pretoria to end extrajudicial killings, criminalization of immigrants and xenophobic attacks in South Africa.
Special Assistant to the President on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora, ABIKE DABIRI-EREWA, who visited the South African High Commissioner to Nigeria, LULU MNGUNI, in Abuja yesterday sought assurances that xenophobic attacks against Nigerians by South Africans would be stopped.
Her visit was sequel to the killing of a Nigerian, TOCHUKWU NNADI, in December last year by South African police officers.
DABIRI-EREWA complained that over 116 Nigerians were killed within two years in South Africa lamenting that 63 per cent of the extrajudicial killings were carried out by the police.
Earlier, the ambassador had expressed regrets over the killings and assured that the Nigerian government would get the report of investigations into deaths of Nigerians in South Africa.
