THE National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has shut down the Yola branch offices of DSTV and Stanbic Bank over xenophobic attacks against Nigerians in South Africa.

The students, who started the picketing yesterday, said the exercise would be extended to MTN offices today.

Early in the morning, the students first visited the DSTv office on Bank Road and then matched over to the Aliyu Mustapha Way, where Stanbic Bank is located.

All through the protest match, the students held placards with various inscriptions, namely: “NANS say no to xenophobia”, “Why kill our citizens and loot their properties?”, “Enough of spiral silence”, “Nigerian students can no longer keep quiet while South Africans kill Nigerians”, among others.

At the Stanbic Bank branch, the students addressed the management through the NAN National Financial Secretary, Danladi Jonah, who said the bank branch would remain shut throughout yesterday and today as directed by NANS’ national leadership.

“We are giving South African businesses in Nigeria seven days to relocate,” he said, adding that NANS would decide the next plan of action after the ultimatum.

The bank’s Zonal Operations Manager, Abubakar Usman, who addressed the students, assured that he would communicate their grievance to the bank’s headquarters.

In an interview, the NANS National Financial Secretary explained that the protest and picketing of South African firms was part of a phased nationwide action by NANS to condemn killings of Nigerians by South Africans
