#Xenophobia; Tight Security At Shoprite Lekki As Shop Owners Count Loses by TheAutoReporter: 10:21am On Sep 04, 2019
The Xenophobic attack on-going in South Africa is not a thing of joy for someone to smile, joke or make jest of, as a citizen of this great country, we condemned this act as inhuman and as a crime against humanity especially towards Africans.

Nigerians decided to do a reprisal of the Xenophobic act being meted by South Africans against Nigerians by storming the popular Shoprite Mall at Lekki. In what started as a protest led to looting of shops, malls, and goods worth millions of naira. A shop, for example, was ransacked and all the goods in that shop were looted.

In order to curtail further breakdown of law and orders and to protect other stores from being broken into, the Lagos Police officers led by RRS Commander, DCP Tunji Disu take control of security at Shoprite, Lekki.

It was reported in the media that a protester lost his life during the protest yesterday.

These are live images from the Lekki Shoprite Mall as obtained by AutoReportNG

South Africa has failed as a nation, and the Nigerian government, as usual, has failed its people.

But these ones looting ShopRite don't have sense. Why must you go and loot from your fellow citizens? Those stores, except DSTV probably, are mostly owned by Nigerians.
If you must loot, enter the main shopping area itself and leave the surrounding stores.

This is no longer a case of retaliation on SA for those demonic attacks, but just a chance for crazy people to rob their own brothers and sisters.

Had Abacha still been in power, SA for don hear am. He was a bad man but he had his use in some issues.

Yawa dey oo

We,Nigerians should know one thing...these sOuth African Companies here in Nigeria have shareholders which if am not mistaken are all Nigerians just like "Dangote Group of Companies" which so many people have shares in.

Destroying or looting these companies ain't adding up at all... These South Africans are even happy that we are doing that.. **That we are robbing Peter to pay Paul**

Those south Africans no get any job and they are not even ready to work..

My advice is this... Let's just not destroy each others properties that are in the mall thinking that we are harming the South Africans...we are harming ourselves indirectly.

Let's just pressurize the Nigerian government to take a stand in this issue.

I would prefer a violence -Free protest in Government premises more than this stuff

God bless Federal Republic of Nigeria.

before we preach to people in south Africa against xenophobia, we must first preach to ourselves about the hate tribalism broods.

when Nigerian hate themselves, how do you expect others to accept and respect you.

attacking shoprite is not the answer it would hurt Nigerian more as there are no south africans working in shoprite , rather it would lead to job loss, the employment our government has failed to provide

In as much we are against the attacks happening in SA, most outlets in shopright are owned by Nigerians. Attacking these shops means we are attacking our country men.

Things like this can only happen when a government refuse to send a direct and clear message to its oppressors


in a case like this, Nigeria Airforce should fly over SA airspace without any clearance.

this would make the SA request for a round table talk with UN as big brother!

it is not called war, but show of might

simple

every individual who looted that shop has always had the intention to steal. It's in their blood if not you won't steal another person's sweat and property.
We all condemn what happened in South Africa even for the fact that it affected my personal person over there but this is no justification

Shame.
The animals who did this should be brought to book.
These criminals don't care about xenophobic attacks.
They don't care about the victims. In fact, they will kill Nigerians for SA xenophobes if they
are paid to do it.

They just want to loot and destroy businesses because they couldn't reach their
potential several years after relocating from villages.

I blame the police for underestimating the criminal tendency of jobless people in a close enclave.
How I wish it is legal to deport criminals to their state of origin.
