The Lagos State Government through Gbenga Omotoso,
the commissioner for Information and strategy has reacted 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.
The state government said, ‘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.
