At Bode Thomas in Surulere, the DSTV was also open for business; a staff also confirmed they resumeed work nationwide on Sunday.
He said some branches reopened on Saturday, but stressed that by Sunday morning all branches had reopened.
Although the office was looking well set and activities going on smoothly, the workers told reporters that hoodlums last week went away with some television sets and damaged some valuables.
“Those hoodlums entered, scattered the whole place, damaged our air conditioner outside, forcefully removed one of the television on the slab and smashed it on the floor. We all ran for our lives. The police later came and chased them away.
“We are back now, activities have commenced, you are safe here,” he said.

“Those boys destroyed a shop thatsells clothes and the woman that owns the shop just loaded her shop with new clothingbefore the incident.
The other shops sell different brands of phones, while thethird deals in different electronics,” he said.
He said those people that did not open their shops were either still scared of the incident or did not get the information that normalcy has been restored.
