Over the weekend, the media has been flooded with news that Nigeria recalled his top two diplomats to South Africa is reaction to the recent xenophobic attacks against African foreigners in the country.
Nigeria’s Minister of State for Foreign Affairs has taken to Twitter, the micro-blogging site, to disclaim the reports as rumours.
Please disregard rumours and reports that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has recalled its High Commissioner to South Africa. #MO
