Xenophobic attacks: Protesting Nigerians invade Shoprite outlets in Ikeja, Surulere, Lekki [Videos]

Some aggrieved Nigerians have invaded Shoprite outlets in Ikeja, Lekki and Surulere areas of Lagos, in what looks like retaliation to the spate of Xenophobic attacks on Nigerians in South Africa.

In several videos presently making the round on social media, some angry Nigerians were seen invading the outlet and destroying wares inside the Lekki Shoprite.

Though they were resisted by policemen at the outlet, the mob lit bonfires, gained access and started throwing away items on the stands.

TheCable reports that in Ikeja, Shoprite suspended its operations around 4pm, five hours ahead of its normal time for closing.

But some women inside the mall scattered wares on the floor.

While some of the workers attempted to stop them, others stood by amid fear that the attack could escalate.
