Lagos State Government has condemned the attack on Tuesday by some persons on Shoprite shopping mall in the Lekki axis of the state, describing the act as ‘being against the Nigerian spirit’.

The facility, which is South-African owned, came under attack by unidentified persons, purportedly in retaliation against attacks on Nigerian businesses and continued killings of Nigerians in South Africa.

In a release signed by the state’s Commissioner for Information, Gbenga Omotosho, he admonished the attackers to sheath their swords as moves are being made by the Nigerian government and its South African counterpart, to ensure an end to the senseless killings of Nigerians in that country.

“The attention of the Lagos State Government has been drawn to the attacks on Shoprite Complexes at Jakande and Sangotedo Area of Ajah by some unidentified people claiming to be acting in retaliation against the attacks on Nigerians in South Africa

“These attacks are condemned as they are against the Nigerian spirit of accommodation and benevolence that the country in general and Lagos State in particular is noted for.”

“The Federal Government is in dialogue with South African Authorities to stop this obnoxious act.  We appeal to our compatriots to eschew violence and any unlawful acts.

“The Lagos State Government wishes to reiterate its commitment to providing a conducive atmosphere where businesses are conducted without hindrances.

“The security agencies have been directed to ensure that law and order prevail in all parts of the State, even as Lagosians are advised to go about their activities without any fear.”
