MTN stores in Nigeria closed until further notice

By Staff Reporter

MTN Nigeria has closed down all of its stores and service centers in the country until further notice after its facilities in three cities were attacked.

The facilities were attacked in retaliation 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.

“MTN condemns any acts of violence, prejudice and xenophobia.”
Meanwhile, Nigerian president Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday reportedly instructed his foreign affairs minister to initiate discussions with South Africa’s high commissioner regarding the xenophobic riots.

Nigeria is MTN’s biggest market, with 58 million users in 2018 and accounts for a third of the South African group’s core profit.
