…as angry Nigerians shut down MTN, DSTV, Shoprite in Lagos

South African owned businesses in Nigeria may suffer more woes or possible shutdown following the continuous attack of Nigerians in South Africa.

Earlier today, some angry Nigerians in Lagos state and other parts of the country took their grievances to business outlets owned by South Africans, disrupting sales and shutting down all business transactions.

Among top business outlets shutdown in the country include MTN, Shoprite and DSTV.

According to online reports, an angry woman whose brother was allegedly burnt alive in the xenophobic attack stormed Shoprite Circle Mall Lekki in retaliation. The angry lady was seen throwing products on the racks all over the place.

At the Jakande axis of Lagos state, the protest was alleged to have turned bloody after a police man shot a protester in front of the mall.

Meanwhile, the Lagos Police spokesperson, Bala Elkana, has confirmed that violence broke out at the Shoprite location in Lekki, and that security has been reinforced around South African owned businesses.
