Valuable items were allegedly looted and destroy from M$G, Affordable Boutique and other shops inside Shoprite Mall in Surulere, Lagos State, on Tuesday night by some suspected social miscreants.
It was meant to condemn the recent and latest attacks on some Nigerians and their properties by some South Africans in their country.
It was reported that these companies’ parent companies are owned by South Africans.
The shop owners were not available to appeal to the miscreants while they were looting the shops.
A policeman who begged for anonymity, revealed that the looted shops belonged to Nigerians.
The security personnel from the Surulere Police Division tried to quell the irate youths and maintain law and order but this later broke down hours later.
The angry mob capitalised on the handful security personnel on ground and broke into the mall to ultimately loot.
However, the security personnel called for reinforcement that dispersed the youth by spraying tear gas into the atmosphere.
This is Surulere Mall.
