ABUJA, Feb 23 (Reuters) - 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 spokesman said.
“They vandalised equipment, stole customer phones and I-Pads. Some customers too were attacked.” (Reporting by Ed Cropley and Chijioke Ohuocha; Editing by James Macharia)
