- High Commissioner To Return Home After Buhari Receives Report Of Special Envoy Says Foreign Affairs Minister

Nigeria has recalled its Ambassador to South Africa, Ambassador Kabiru Bala.

The nation has also pulled out of the World Economic Forum(WEF).

It also demanded full compensation, the News Agency of Nigeria has reported, quoting a “presidential source.”

Our Correspondent also reported that the move was meant to register serious displeasure with the South African authorities over the ongoing xenophobic attacks on Nigerians resident in South Africa.


The decision was taken at a morning meeting between President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo on Wednesday in Abuja, our Correspondent added.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Geoffrey Onyeama, also attended the meeting at the Presidential Villa.


The source further stated that Nigeria would pull out of the World Economic Forum on Africa, scheduled to be held in Cape Town, South Africa, from September 4 to 6.
By this action, Nigeria will follow the examples of Congo, Rwanda and Malawi, who have since pulled out of the Summit.
