By Dayo Adesulu

Shoprite Nigeria has condemned the xenophobic violence and intimidation against Nigerians and other countries’ nationals in South Africa.

In a release, the Regional Manager, Mr. Olufemi Oke, said: “We are concerned over the acts of violence against foreign nationals in South Africa and the resultant rhetoric of intolerance that is now being levelled against South Africans living in Nigeria.

“As a company with deep African roots that employs thousands of Africans, it would like to see an end to xenophobia across the continent.”
