Angry Nigerians have attacked Shoprite in Lekki, Lagos, to avenge the xenophobic attacks on Nigerians in South Africa.
Concise News had reported that Nigerians in South Africa have been attacked, with their buildings and businesses burnt by South African mob, claiming foreigners were taking over their jobs and country.
After being resisted by policemen at the outlets, they eventually gained access and started looting items.
Reacting to this, President Muhammadu Buhari in a statement by his spokesman Femi Adesina sent a special envoy to his South African counterpart, President Cyril Ramaphosa.
“The Special Envoy is expected to arrive in Pretoria latest Thursday, September 5, 2019,” Adesina said.
