Xenophobia: Protest erupts in Abuja, angry Nigerians target South African businesses.

Angry Nigerians went on rampage on Wednesday, September 4, in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory, in protest against attacks on the country’s citizens in South Africa.

The protesters, according to Report, blocked the roads, burnt tyres and attacked a mast belonging to one of the telecommunications companies operating in Nigeria.

Report showed that the protesters stormed a business orgaisation with roots in South Africa forcing men of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) to mobilize to the scene.

The report added that the protesters were prevented by the police from attacking the mall.

It was reported that some Nigerians staged a massive protest at Shoprite premises along the Lekki-Epe Expressway, which has led to huge traffic gridlock.

The protesters are calling for a shutdown of all businesses that are owned by South Africans in the country.
