The spokesman reminded residents that those working at these South African business concerns within the state were their brothers and sisters. There had been increased police personnel and other covert security personnel deployed to Shoprite Mall along Enugu-Abakaliki Road; MTN office in Zik Avenue and Multi-Choice office along Ogui Road among others.
