"We have been in communication with the Nigerian government and we have been assured of the protection of the businesses belonging to South Africa", Ngqengelele told local broadcaster eNCA.

South Africa's Department of International Relations and Cooperation, commenting before Nigeria announced Osinbajo's withdrawal, said attendance was "satisfactory".

South Africa has temporarily closed its diplomatic missions in Nigeria following reprisal attacks by Nigerians triggered by xenophobic violence in South Africa. "There is an Afrophobia we are sensing that exists, there is resentment and we need to address that", Pandor said on the sidelines of a continental economic conference in Cape Town.

"After receiving reports and threats from some of the Nigerians, we chose to temporarily close while we are assessing the situation", foreign ministry spokesman Lunga Ngqengelele said, adding the missions were shut on Wednesday.

Two of those killed were South African, leading to suggestions that some of the violence was as much criminal as xenophobic.

"Interested Nigerians are therefore advised to liaise with the High Commission of Nigeria in Pretoria and the Consulate General of Nigeria in Johannesburg for further necessary arrangement".

Information Minister Lai Mohammed also warned in a statement that "targeting South African companies in Nigeria for attack was akin to cutting off ones nose to spite the face".

A presidential source told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that Nigeria also demanded full compensation for the loss of life and property of Nigerians affected by the attacks.

Rioting in South Africa has killed at least five people in Johannesburg and Pretoria in recent days.

Although dozens of businesses have been burnt down or destroyed, shops owned by South Africans have also been attacked.

Authorities have made nearly 300 arrests, while people across the continent have protested and voiced their anger on social media.

Nigerian police officers beef up security during a protest in Abuja, capital of Nigeria, Sept. 4, 2019.

The police in South Africa have said that the violence has subsided and almost 300 people had been arrested in connection with the trouble.
