The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Honorable Femi Gbajabiamila has said that the House will authorize legal funding for Nigerians who are victims of the recent xenophobic attacks in South Africa.
Mr Gbajabiamila revealed this at a press briefing on the xenophobic attacks in the country.
According to him, the House will invite the Minister of Foreign affairs, the Nigerian Ambassador to South Africa and the Chairman of the Diaspora Commission for further discussions and decisions concerning the attacks.
The Speaker said that those who are tempted to respond to the latest incidents with violence and destruction in communities should resist such temptation.
He further demanded that the South African government should conduct a thorough investigation and make public their findings.
