PHOTOS: Shoprite, DStv back to life at Ikeja mall but MTN office remains closed

Activities have resumed at Shoprite and DStv offices at the Ikeja City Mall in Lagos, days after protesters targetted South African-owned businesses across the country over the xenophobic attacks.

Although violence was not recorded at the Shoprite outlet in Ikeja, it suspended operations around 4pm on Tuesday, five hours ahead of its normal time for closing.

However, there were cases of violence at Surulere and Ajah branches of the company.

When TheCable visited the mall on Monday, DStv and Shoprite were open for business but MTN office was shut. The telco had shut its offices nationwide after a mob set one of its offices in Ibadan, Oyo state capital, on fire and vandalised another in Abuja.

Below are some pictures from Ikeja City Mall:
