This is a video in which a civil society group, Citizens Advocacy for Social and Economic Rights (CASER), has called on the South African government to pay compensation to victims of the xenophobic attacks in that country.

CASER, in a statement issued on Monday, in Abuja, by its Executive Director, Mr Frank Tietie, also demanded the setting up of a victims support fund by the Federal Government to assist affected Nigerians.

The group, according to the statement, canvassed that all South African businesses in Nigeria contributed money to the fund.

The statement said the demands would be presented during a peaceful protest to the South African High Commission in Abuja, on Tuesday.

It added that CASER would use the protest to denounce the attacks and hold the South African government responsible for failing to protect Nigerians and other African nationals in its domain.

The group said: “The South African government would be compelled to pay compensation to all the victims of the xenophobic attacks.

“This is imperative since the government has failed to take steps to prevent the reoccurrence of the attacks after the 2008 xenophobic violence which led to the gruesome death of 62 persons.

“The Nigerian government would be demanded to set up a fund to which all South African businesses in Nigeria must contribute money to support the victims of the recent shameful xenophobic attacks in South Africa.
