South Africa's MTN concerned over violence against its property in Nigeria

JOHANNESBURG, Feb 23 (Reuters) - South Africa’s mobile operator MTN Group said on Thursday it was concerned over the violence against its property in Nigeria, where protesters attacked and vandalised its head office.

“Reacting to recent events that appear to be directed against non-nationals both in South Africa and Nigeria, MTN Group expresses concern over the violence,” the group said in a statement.

Nigerian protesters attacked and vandalised the head office of Africa’s biggest mobile firm in Abuja in apparent retaliation for anti-Nigerian violence in South Africa. (Reporting by Nqobile Dludla; Editing by James Macharia)
