Nigeria: Amigo Supermarket Re-Opens for Businesses

The management of Amigo supermarket has expressed joy at the re-opening of the popular mall after seven months while its owner Mustapha Fawaz, a Lebanese who also owns the Wonderland Amusement Park, Abuja was being prosecuted for alleged terrorism charges.

The supermarket, one of Abuja's busiest, re-opened for full commercial activities on Monday, two weeks after a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja and presided over by Justice Adeniyi Ademola on November 29 ordered the Department of State Services (DSS) also known as the State Security Service (SSS), who locked up the mall to re-open it and the park as no concrete evidence was established against the two organizations linking them with terrorism.

Manager of the mall, Mr. Paul Odey told Weekly Trust yesterday that it was a sigh of relief for them to be back in business and thanked Nigerians and their customers for patronising them after its re-opening.

"We are happy to be back in business and we commend our customers for their loyalty to us," Odey said.

Customers were seen coming in and out especially those shopping for the yuletide. Four of the customers, Ahmed Ibrahim, Sidiqah Abubakar, Hajia Jumai Audu and Janet Okafor, said they were pleased to see the mall re-opened.
