Nigerian People in South Africa on Tuesday decried the invasion of the Nigerian Consulate in Johannesburg.

City Power officials and Metro Police Department personnel stormed the premises to disconnect electricity over alleged unpaid bills.

The Nigerian Citizen Association South Africa (NICASA) described the action as “retrogressive, xenophobic and avoidable”.

A statement by the association’s Secretary General, Kazeem Tunde said City Power was out to disgrace Nigeria and its nationals.

NICASA maintained there cannot be any plausible excuse to warrant the occupation of the mission.

“The police can as well go into any consulate to make an arrest without respecting the Vienna Convention on consular relations”, Tunde noted.
