PHOTOS: Bread war at Shoprite in preparation for Eid-el-Kabri

12 September 2016, 15:46

Lagos - The Shoprite store in the Ilorin mall in Kwara State resembled a war zone as swarms of people stood in long queues in the hope of purchasing bread on the eve of Eid-el-Kabri, Naij reports.

With many people expected to travel to their home towns, an influx of customers made their way to their local Shoprite store to purchase bread with some even queuing up to two hours.

"You won’t believe that I have been here standing for the past two hours for me to buy just two breads, and all my efforts to get to the front were in vain as people would rush the bread and I cannot withstand the pressure.

"The truth is I have promised my family that they would all eat this bread today, and it is sad that I will disappoint them when I get home,” a local said.

Meanwhile police were seen beating unruly customers with a whip as those who became with waiting in the long queues tried to burst into the front of the line.
