Some group of angry youths have taken to the streets of Enugu State on Tuesday, April 21, 2015 to protest the raging xenophobic attacks against Nigerians in South Africa.

The peaceful protest was embarked upon, as part of efforts to bring an end to the killings of Nigerians and other foreigners in South Africa.

According to Daily Post, the protesters, who were chanting anti-xenophobia songs, issued a 48-hour ultimatum to the South-African President, Jacob Zuma, to either protect Nigerians in the country or have them destroy South-African investments in Nigeria.

Meanwhile, Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini, who reportedly instigated the xenophobic attacks has promised to call for an end to the violence in which several persons have been killed and a host of others displaced.

Similarly, the President of South Africa, Jacob Zuma has told foreigners in the country that the government does not want them to leave, adding that they would help them return to their communities if they wished to stay back.
