Abayomi Oyetoro, a South Africa-based Nigerian businessman on Thursday condemned the lingering xenophobic attacks in South-Africa, as he lamented that his children ‘are still in critical condition’
Speaking with NAN on telephone, Abayomi said: “When they came to my house in Pretoria West, I threw my three children across a neighbour’s fence to save their lives.
“The youngest hit his skull on the ground while my daughter also got badly injured. As we speak, my children are still in critical condition and we are praying to God to save their lives.
“Honestly, I do not know the motive of the attack. My house was burnt; everything was destroyed, including my car and international passport. We are just managing to survive by God’s grace.”
He said Nigerians and other foreigners were now living in fear over reports of a planned attack on Friday.
Oyetoro appealed to the federal government to come to their aid following the complete loss suffered in the attacks.
