Xenophobia: Police Arrest Protesters in Lagos As IGP Orders Security Beef Up For Foreigners

No fewer than 125 looters have been arrested by the police in Lagos in connection with the destruction of properties owned by South Africans in the wake of Xenophobic attack on Nigerians in South Africa.

The Inspector-General of Police, IGP, Mohammed Adamu, has also ordered water-tight security around embassies, foreign missions, foreigners and their businesses within the country.

The order is against the backdrop of the unfortunate attack on Shoprite outlets in Lekki area of Lagos State on 3rd September 2019 by some miscreants who attacked and looted the Malls ostensibly under the pretext of protesting against the incessant xenophobic attacks in South Africa.
