MTN office in Abuja attacked amidst xenophobic protest...

Mobile phone giant MTN's head office in the Nigerian capital, Abuja, has been sealed off after protesters against xenophobic attacks in South Africa tried to storm it.

Police are now guarding the building of the South African-owned firm and all staff have been evacuated.

No-one is being allowed to enter the building.

From outside, I could not see any damage to it.

Earlier, a crowd had protested at the building against attacks on Nigerians in South Africa.

Reuters news agency is quoting an MTN spokesman as saying that its offices in Nigeria's capital, Abuja, have been attacked and vandalised in apparent retaliation for anti-Nigerian violence in South Africa.

The unnamed spokesman for the South African-owned company told the agency:
"They vandalised equipments, stole customer phones and iPads. Some customers too were attacked."

I said it earlier that in a previous thread that the recent attacks might lead to retaliation on some south African businesses in Nigeria such as shoprite,mtn etc... Now it has began,..The south African govt should arrest those guilty of such attacks in south Africa.
