Looting a multinational that operates a franchise business model is a senseless move. More than 90% of DSTV offices in Nigeria are owned and fully paid for by Nigerians.

Unfortunately, it's a catch 22 situation here as it is still Nigerians that will lose somehow, by looting & destroying SA-linked properties & biz.

How? All their businesses - Novare Mall, Circle Mall, PEP, ShopRite, MTN etc - are not only franchises but as well insured by mostly Nigerian-owned insurance companies in accordance to the law. Nigerians are not only shareholders but staff earning salaries in these insurance companies; they share profit or loss, whatever the case.

MTN for instance, own no single mast in Nigeria; all masts are owned by IHS Nigeria.

Sadly, Nigerians can't point to any major establishment in SA, most are corner-shop (without insurance as Nigerians shy away from insurance).

Question is what is the way out:
First we missed the opportunity, our govt should have implanted some Nigerians in SA after we helped them to fight apartheid just like America does whenever they help any country out, i.e. Afghanistan, Kuwait, Iraq, even Saudi.

Now, we should focus on making our politicians/leaders do the right thing, fight the good fight from home not Abroad, u can't ever win Abroad if u never win @ home!

I won't want to talk about some bad behaviors of some of our brothers Abroad as nothing can ever justify xenophobia (coupled with the revelation that it has State and police support).

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.

Your last 2 paragraphs, I just hope you are not letting your tribal side get the better hold of you. Because we know people who are more prone to being agberos.
We know the people who are agberos in Nigeria and we know where they come from.

Having said that, it is insensitive of you and total stupidity to delve into ethnic bigotry at this time of mourning for our country.

Go and drink your pap. It will get old.

Please don't say this.
You can never trust thugs and touts with power.
They will kill you if it serves their aim.

Many Nigerians lost millions yesterday because SA are engaging in xenophobic attacks.
Why should a Nigerian struggling in Nigeria be made to pay for South African excesses?

These thieves and burglars are criminals destroying Nigerian businesses.
Never trust or support these criminals.

Maybe your life depends on tribalism and Agbero is your family work.
I don't care, if you are a criminal living in a city, I believe you should be deported back to your village.



We know the people who are agberos in Nigeria and we know where they come from.
You are too dumb to be reasoned with.
You are probably one of those who celebrate criminals as long as it doesn't affect you.
Mind you, Agbero is not a crime but burgling and stealing from shops which you cannot
afford to shop in is a big economic crime.

How much dumber can you get?
Having attacked Agbero for being Agberos on tribal ground even though my post is about looters
destroying businesses, you want to appear neutral.
You are nothing but a fool.

When some idiots were calling for reprisals I know that criminals like you and your gang are only
looking for an excuse to loot, steal and destroy.
But the government have learned from this episode.

Whenever a similar event occurs in the future, don't ever think you will be allowed to loot freely
by hiding under justice. They will be ready for you by then.

Bunch of cowards attacking their compatriots for crimes committed in a foreign land.

Enjoy your looting spree while it lasts.

Lol, the first question u should ask is, do we even have a serviceable aircraft talkless of having an air force. Nigerian Air force is not comparable to what South Africa has. Aunty, flying over south African airspace without permission will not solve the issue

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
God bless you.

The only reason I see why nigerians re attacking , its not just because these companies rr originated from south Africa.. But trying to tell the government to take action.. Majority of their families and friends re been massacred
over there and they re venting their angers on the thing they see close to South Africa.
But nevertheless, damaging properties ain't the way to solve problems..

Those frustrated boys would see this as an advantage.. As i was stepping out of evening service u need to see the way some stupid baggars with their full head colors where shooting and looting in Ado road yesterday night around 8-9pm. Looting shops and passers by, stopping vehicles and vandalizing everything...I had to respect myself and relax inside church before them go use the opportunity disrespect me. Even just got a call now that sangotedo is still being ravaged, free looting of any mall / shops till now as i'm posting this.

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.

Even the DStv shop is just an outlet owned by a Nigerian. They should go the south African embassy and loot.

Some of you just buy data, log into nairaland and start typing the first ridiculous thing that comes into your mind.

Same Nigerian airforce that can't fly over Sambisa till date?

How about we send you there with guns as a show of bigger might?
