Angry Nigerian youths have staged a protest at the Shoprite Office in Lugbe, Abuja over renewed Xenophobic attacks on Nigerians in South Africa.
The protesters numbering over a hundred were prevented from gaining access to the facility by men of the Nigerian Police who barricaded the main road leading to the building.
Angry by the action of the police, the irate youths set burn fire on the major highway, making the police to fire tear gas in a bid to clear the road for trapped motorists.
Reports say other major South African businesses in Nigeria such as Multichoice and MTN have been shut down and taken over by the police for the time being.
Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari Nigeria has recalled its Ambassador to South Africa Kabiru Bala, following the wave of Xenophobic attacks on Nigerians in South Africa.
The nation has also pulled out of the World Economic Forum on Africa, scheduled to be held in Cape Town, South Africa, from September 4 to 6.
The decision was taken in a meeting by the President, Muhammadu Buhari, Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, and Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama.
By this action, Nigeria will follow the examples of Congo, Rwanda, and Malawi, who have since pulled out of the Summit.
Recall that Nigerian musician, Burna Boy vowed never to step his feet in South Africa again, while Tiwa Savage also canceled her show in the country.
