It was reported that the youth  had on Tuesday evening threatened to attack the Shoprite Mall , MTN and Multi -choices offices in the area but they were prevented by the  police  personnel  from Surulere Police Station that were drafted there.

The  managements of some of the companies had closed early for the day when they received information that some hoodlums were planning to attack them.
