Protesters storm Shoprite outlets in Lagos, threaten to burn them down, as more people continue to destroy items bought from S. African owned businesses
A face book user Kingsley Julius said:
”Consequential to the Xenophobic attacks, while Nigerian are reprising the attacks should be cautious of attacking businesses belonging to fellow Nigerians so that we don’t lose at both ends because even most MTN centers are owned by Nigerians, the Shoprite mall as you see, apart from the grocery stores are all owned by fellow Nigerians.
In as much as I feel boycotting all South African businesses / products and services in Nigeria is good way of handling the situation, I think we should make them feel our pain too by burning down all they control in our country”.
