Telecommunication giant, MTN has announced that it is shutting down its operations in Nigeria, until further notice.

This is following reprisal attacks targeting its offices and facilities across Nigeria by angry mobs.

The retaliatory attacks on a host of South African businesses in Nigeria arrive on the heels of persistent xenophobic attacks on Nigerians and other foreign nationals in South Africa.
The latest attacks in South Africa led to the torching and looting of over 50 Nigerian businesses.
