Nigerians living in South Africa, Ghana and Togo have recently been attacked, to the extent of some been killed.
The federal government had issued a warning to Ghana and Togo to stop attacking Nigerians in their countries.
The Chairman of the Nigerian Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Mrs Abike Dabiri-Erewa, had issued the warning in June after she met with President Muhammadu Buhari on the matter.
Dabiri-Erewa called on the foreign countries to protect Nigerians the same way the lives of their nationals were safeguarded in Nigeria.
