Angry Nigerians Attack MTN Head Office In Abuja(Photo)

Some angry Nigerians on Thursday broke into the
MTN head office located
at 4 Madiera street, off
Shehu Shagari way,
Maitama in Abuja, attacking some
members of staff of the organisation, customers
while also stealing
valuables.

A witness, who simply
identified himself as
Oscar, told journalists
that, but for the
intervention of
policemen, the protesters would have
destroyed the building.

He said; "The protest was about
the xenophobia that is
happening in South
Africa. The protesters
were not happy about
the way South Africans have been maltreating Nigerians,"

"They wanted to pull
down the office, but
security operatives
prevented them. One of
them even suggested
that they should go to the embassy."


An MTN spokesman was
quoted as saying:

"They are protesting
against the xenophobic
attacks on Nigerians in
South Africa. It's our
regional head office in
Abuja. That's where we have our customer care
center." He added that the
protesters vandalised
equipment, stole
customer phones and I-pads. Some customers
too were said to have been attacked.
