MTN Nigeria says all stores will be closed after anti-South African attacks


ABUJA, Sept 4 – The Nigerian division of South African telecom operator MTN said on Wednesday it will close all stores and service centres in the country until further notice after its facilities in three cities were attacked.

The facilities were attacked after days of riots in South Africa chiefly targeting foreign-owned, including Nigerian, businesses.

“The safety and security of our customers, staff and partners is our primary concern,” MTN Nigeria said in a statement.
