Situation in Nigeria stabilises

The situation in Nigeria appears to have been resolved, with the Department of International Relations and Cooperation (Dirco) confirming to TAM's sister publication, eTNW, that South Africa’s two embassies in Nigeria will likely reopen on Monday.

The Dirco representative also confirmed that the department had received no reports of people being hassled or denied entry at the airports or border posts when entering Nigeria.

There have been no more reports of violence since police quelled attacks on SA-owned shops on Wednesday.
