The Nigeria Union South Africa, NUSA, has initiated an anti-crime campaign to reduce the rate of criminal activities in South Africa.
The union’s National Welfare Officer, Mr Trust Oyewole, said in Lagos that the campaign which started on Sunday in the Sunnyside area of Pretoria would be carried out in the nine provinces in South Africa.
“We realised that communities are not working together to curb crimes while the criminals are united in perpetuating their criminal
activities that affect the whole community,” Oyewole said.
“Nigerians generally are not criminals but genuine businessmen and professionals who are greatly contributing to the economy. The few Nigerians who commit crime should face the full wrath of the law,” he explained.
Oyewole advised the few Nigerians who are engaging in one criminal activity or the other to desist and turn a new leaf.
However, he added that the Help Desk of NUSA was ready to help rehabilitate and repatriate willing Nigerians.
