ABUJA Feb 23 Nigerian protesters attacked and
vandalised the head office of South African mobile phone giant
MTN in Abuja on Thursday in apparent retaliation for
anti-Nigerian violence in South Africa, an MTN spokesman said.
"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," the MTN
"They vandalised equipment, stole customer phones and
I-Pads. Some customers too were attacked."
