Xenophobia: Protesters Set To Burn Down Abuja Lugbe Shoprite by DanielOwen2050(m): 9:49pm On Sep 06, 2019
Nigerian youths protesting the xenophobic attacks on Nigerians in South Africa on Wednesday, 4th September, 2019 made a bonfire on the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Road, Lugbe, Abuja, situated at a few metres from a South African franchise, Shoprite Mall.

The outrageous smoke exuding from the bonfire restricted free movement of vehicles on the Expressway as security agents mounted guard over the shopping mall which failed to open for fear of being attacked.

The Nigerian Security men, Civil Defence Corps and armed policemen were seen trying their best to provide the security necessary for the safety of people within the area.

Similarly, a branch of Shoprite at Jabi, Abuja, was under heavy police protection to deter protesters or looters from intruding into the premises.

Speaking on a radio programme, the Federal Capital Territory Commissioner of Police, Bala Ciroma, said he had deployed police personnel across the city to maintain law and order.

It commended the arrest of 70 suspects in connection with the attacks and looting of shops belonging to some Nigerians by the SA authorities.
The MFA spokesman, Ferdinand Nwonye, in a statement assured Nigerians in South Africa of the protection of the Federal Government.
