“Interested Nigerians are therefore advised to liaise with the High Commission of Nigeria in Pretoria and the Consulate General of Nigeria in Johannesburg for further necessary arrangement.”

The attacks had forced Nigeria to pull out of the ongoing World Economic Forum in South Africa.

The country also recalled Kabiru Bala, its high commissioner to South Africa.

In its initial response to the fresh attacks, the federal government had summoned Bobby Monroe, South Africa’s high commissioner to Nigeria.

President Muhammadu Buhari also dispatched a special envoy to convey to President Cyril Ramaphosa, his concerns on the attacks.

Nigeria has also demanded full compensation for its citizens involved in the latest attacks.
