OPC gives South African govt. 48 hours to end xenophobic attacks

The national leader of the Oodua Peoples Congress, Frederick Faseun, has given the South African government a 48-hour ultimatum to stop the xenophobic attacks against Nigerians in South Africa or face its wrath.

Mr Faseun, who is also the chairman of Unity Party of Nigeria, said the attacks are capable of bringing out the beast in the best of men and also a mark of ingratitude against Nigeria despite Nigeria’s assistance to the country during the apartheid period.

“While the Nigerian government and the rest of the world seek a diplomatic solution to this season of madness, the OPC hereby warns that South Africa must end this rash of xenophobia within 48 hours,” Mr. Faseun said during a press conference in Lagos on Tuesday.

“Enough is enough. Our South Africans must know that nobody has a monopoly of violence. They must halt the killings, the maiming and the looting of foreigners in their country,” Mr. Faseun said.

“These incidents of xenophobia will provoke reprisal attacks against South Africans and their interests in other lands. Thus, beginning with the belligerent Zulu King, all South Africans involved in these attacks should be arrested immediately and prosecuted for crimes against humanity.”

    ……..as what ? They should arrest all this idiots from our country. What is he ? A spoke person of the Nigerians ?

    Honorable Frederick Faseun is very funny. How can you give a hater only 48 hrs to stop hatred? Those attacks on Nigerians and other black Africans are manifestations of donkey years deep-seated hate. To alleviate their anger they have to resort to violence again other hapless Africans living in their midst. When their victims leave they will resort to killing themselves.

    Many lazy tribes are like that. When they see progressive hard-working other ethnic groups in their midst they get furious and plot to eliminate them; if unchecked such hatred leads to war and genocide.

  • Curseless

    That is what I call empty blustering Mr Faseun. I believe you are only trying to call attention to yourself in that you know there is nothing you can do to be frank and besides you are not in the government where diplomatic policies are made. Are you trying to justify the mouth wetting pipe line security contract you and Gani got from the out going government? I’m just asking.

  • bolaji

    these useless OPC people should go and sit down, they have disgraced themselves and want to seek relevance in an issue they know they cant effect a change in people’s attitude or seek restitution for the victims. the leaders of the two factions are just political jobbers, no more no less

    Mr Irrelevant , what can u do to SA government after your 48 hrs expire? You are indeed a clueless man . Do you have a standing army to match to SA. Please the era of jobless senile elders pokenosing in government is ending.
    That is the change we voted for.Leave your manipulated Jonathan to use Diplomacy to solve this problem, Abi u want to advice him to change the date as you Fasheun did , changing Feb to March. Go and hide Sir.

      The worst Fasheun may do is to deploy the pipeline watchers to attack MTN, PROTEA hotels, Multichoice (DSTV), Shoprite(Tinubu may fight back which may turn bloody). In other words, he can only mobilize lagos area boys to attack SA interest in lagos, but he need to understand that Lagos area boys are yet to exhaust the dollars they received during the recent elections in Nigeria, as such area boys may not have time for Fasheun.

    Dr Fasheun, stop disgracing yourself. Why are you putting yourself in the same category with Gani Adams? What will OPC do after the expiration of the ultimatum? Nothing. OPC has outlived its usefulness. Please find something doing if you are jobless. After all you are a medical doctor. Dust your stethoscope and begin serious business or follow President Jonathan to Otuoke to be his boy-boy.

  • Mofe

    Yoruba people with no shame at all. Giving ultimatum to South africa while failing to give ultimatum to the alien Fulani Emir in Yoruba land of Ilorin is laughable and mumuist. By the way, Hausa Fulani stayed in Obalende uninterrupted by Yoruba people for 29 yrs stealing and looting as one Norther president after another kept coming in via Coups…The Yoruba couldnt plan even half a Coup. Those who tried are still on youtube on their knees begging & crying even as I post this comment……and this is part of the problem Nigeria faces today.

    Despite the highier degree attainment of the founder of OPC-Dr Fredrick Fasehun,his control and management of OPC seems like an organisation led by a stark illietrate with the issuance of ultimatum of 48-hours to South Africans to end zenophonic attacks against Nigerians.What can OPC terrorists do against South Africans from within some South-West-Yoruba-region.

    Unless,if OPC might attempt to vandalize South African onwed MTN and other investment in Nigeria,which would be barbaric
    as thousands of Nigerians are employed and benefit from MTN services daily.Diplomatic crisis can best be allowed to be handled diplomatically by officials of the two nations-Nigerria and South Africa.
