THE POLICE HAVE CAST A DRAGNET TO APPREHEND THOSE WHO WOULD BUY ITEMS LOOTED FROM STORES AND SHOPS DURING TUESDAY’S PROTESTS AGAINST XENOPHOBIC ATTACKS AGAINST NIGERIANS AND OTHER NATIONALS IN SOUTH AFRICA.

SHOPS AND BUSINESSES LINKED TO SOUTH AFRICA IN LAGOS WERE INVADED BY HOODLUMS WHO LOOTED VALUABLES, WHILE OTHERS WERE VANDALISED IN OTHER PLACES.

SUCH SHOPS INCLUDE POPULAR SUPERMARKET, SHOPRITE, JUST AS SEVERAL OTHERS WITH NO LINKS TO SOUTH AFRICA BUT SHARING MALL SPACES WITH SOUTH AFRICAN BUSINESSES ALSO SUFFERED ATTACKS.

SECURITY EXPERTS SAID SOME OF THE EXPENSIVE LOOTED ITEMS ESPECIALLY SMARTPHONES, WRISTWATCHES AND OTHER ELECTRONICS COULD BE TRACKED.

THE LAGOS STATE POLICE COMMAND, WHICH MADE THIS DISCLOSURE ON FRIDAY, WARNED OF STIFF PENALTY FOR ANYONE FOUND TO HAVE BOUGHT FROM THE ITEMS THAT WERE LOOTED DURING THE TUESDAY DISORDER.
