Cape Town - Nigeria has expressed concern over the ill-treatment meted on Nigerians in Zimbabwe, saying Nigerians constantly faced humiliation in their daily activities with immigration officials or other security agencies, it was reported on Wednesday.

According to NewsDay, Nigerian Senate President David Mark appealed to the Zimbabwean government to improve its hospitality to Nigerians and other foreigners living in the country.

He made the appeal when he hosted Zimbabwe's deputy prime minister Thokozani Khupe in Abuja on Tuesday.

In a statement signed by the chief secretary to Senate President Paul Mumeh, Mark reminded the government and people of Zimbabwe of the need to accommodate other nationals in the country.

"Nigeria will contribute towards ensuring that true democracy reigns in Zimbabwe," Mark was quoted as saying in the statement.
