Rat is a traveller ....its everywhere even in london so I don't see any big deal......yes they are supposed to prevent it from roaming around freely and disturbing their customers. But mr Rat is a freelance agent....*No further details*

Lindaikeji sometimes you act too ignorant. How can it be ok for rats to roam around a shop where food items are sold. Thats just wrong. If it were to be abroad they would shut down the shoprite till they put their house in order.

AprokoManagerApril said...

Hahaha, you saw one rat and jumped? How about the huge Rats in Silverbird Galleria Abuja where i work. It seems they rented their own shop bcos they dont run when we try to chase them. Although they use the emergency exit. Woks and Koi don suffer for their hands. Big Man big wahala.

It's normal does not mean it's acceptable.
That's a heal and safety issue.

Lol!!!!! It came to shop too na

Anonymous said...

Madam, I don't support this! Did you make an official report to them first or lodge a complaint before going to social media to raise this ruckus after they disregarded your complaint? Sometimes, give someone the benefit of doubt before trying to raise a storm.

chimaobi simeon said...

Linda is not normal. This is pure negligence in part of mgt of the mall. Rat is not part of wat we buy.

Ukay said...

Linda if u tnk that is so normal then I can imagine how many rats u have in your kitchen. Nothing normal about it, the mgt. Of the shop should take care of it, it's disgusting and not funny at all. Would u be comfortable shopping alongside rats?!

Abeg I agree with Lamide, its not normal. I know they're pests and kinda difficult to Ctrl but they're ways you can make sure you get them away for good.

I bet u will run and leave ur slippers behind if you had seen d rat.
Shoprite is suppose to v a pest and rodent control system. It would cost them more if these animals roam freely and it's bad for their reputation.

What do rat feed on? Is nt everything you say esp those things that are normal.

Rats are everywhere in Lagos, there is no house in lagos that u won't find one arnd!! Not to talk abt where they can find free food.... they need to call pest control to handle the situation!!

Too bad she called out d shop, d mgt shuld do sometin abt it.

Its possible not to have mice or rats in a house. All you need to do is kill all existing vermin by fumigation and then keep your doors and mosquito netting closed all the time.

Can shoprite rat be any bigger than the one I saw at MUNCHIES RESTUARANT Opebi Lagos????

I made my order and went upstairs to use the restroom. Omo mehn see RHATZ. Black hairy bodies with yellow eyes.

O chim! Piiss commot for my body sharp. Don't even know when I landed outside headed home sharp. Those kinda places need to be shut down asap.

Christie you are talking nonsense. Having lived in London all my life I can only recall about two occasions seeing rats and they have been outside near exposed bins. So no they are not everywhere. Unless where you stay in london you keep it dirty.

Anonymous said...

People should stop forming. Where there is food, there must be rats. No biggie. Nobody likes them but Chill. They cook inside there, they have trash, plus all y'all who throw items away anyhow. Rat must dey. It's something to laugh about but still they should try to fumigate

Anonymous said...

Linda ensure you post this comment and save a life..... Everybody needs to be weary of the food section of I kea mall shoprite, my friend and I have had severe food poisoning after buying food in that shoprite... I bought rice and pork a long time ago and it landed me in the hospital. When a friend of mine came in from ph I wanted to give her a a treat I took to the mall to buy pastry but she insisted in getting their cooked rice, chicken etc... I told of my experience and along with the fact that the seafood section has a foul smell buy she insisted, you won't believe it! My friend started stooping and throwing up so bad, she collapsed in a bus and they had to call everyone in her phone to come and carry her, please my people do not buy food from shop rite ikeja oh! Surulere shoprite sells the freshest food biko! Don't say I didn't warn you.

Bunny said...

Rat dey pay rent for any where b4? They live where they plaese except you make a concious effort to chase them out

Anonymous said...

And why shouldn't she say where this happened? That abroad you are calling, a picture of just one rat would have shut Shoprite down. Who wants to go where they would use their money to buy food that may have come into contact with rat faeces and urine? She doesn't need to try to make d company look bad, Shoprite should know better. From the way you are talking I'm sure that your house especially you kitchen is full of cockroaches and rats.

I don't go near Shoprite anymore since the day I saw a mighty rat too while we were all queued up at the paying counter. It seemed very normal to them. I grabbed my bag and left the trolley without paying. 2 years now.

Jules Louis said...

Nahhh. Not normal at all. I wage war against rats. Serious wars like I'm d Isis against rats in my home o. Most of these rats r poisonous even their waste products. They shouldn't be left to roam freely.

27th January 20016 was oh so shocked to see a rat at Shoprite this afternoon at the checkout counter. In fact it was sauntering around like it was used to people. How nasty. Have now Googled Rat at Shoprite ( for sure I didnt expect to get any hits lo and behold in fact I am one of MANY!!!!!!) The annoying thing is that the employees were so lackadaisical, ashee they don see many taya!!! Last time I will be shopping at SHOPRITE, now that Lassa Fever is rife!!!!
