“The place is on fire, still being looted, and people are proudly carrying loot on their heads and shoulders.

“I couldn’t take photos. Boys are armed with cutlasses and knives. A few looked my way”.

Looters at the Spar

The Shoprite outlet in the mall was looted last year September in the wake of reactions to the xenophobia against Nigerians in South Africa.

The Novare Mall in Sangotedo, Lekki was similarly attacked, with many shops emptied.
