Following the wake of xenophobic attacks in South Africa, an irate mob has retaliated by setting the Bodija, Ibadan office of telecommunications company, MTN ablaze.
The incident resulted in a gridlock as vehicles passing through Agodi government secretariat road en route the University of Ibadan are having a hectic time navigating the road.
Following this incident, the state police command has had to deploy anti-riot policemen to other MTN outlets in the city.
A similar fire incident was also aborted on Tuesday evening as angry Nigerian youths attacked the MTN service centre located at Mobil Bus Stop on MKO Abiola Way, Ibadan.
The angry youths were stopped from entering the multi-million naira office by policemen who were deployed by the state police command.
