Lagos re-opens Ladipo, Oyingbo, other markets, threatens permanent closure

The Lagos State Government has announced the re-opening of Ladipo, Oyingbo, Alamatu Ologede and Ile-Epo markets.

The state government said that the re-opening of these markets which were shut due to environmental issues, followed full compliance with requisite conditions.

This disclosure is contained in a post made on Monday, October 9, 2023, by the Lagos State Commissioner for Environment and Water Resources, Tokunbo Wahab, on his official X (formerly Twitter) account.

Wahab, who has been on an environmental enforcement drive that has led to the shutting down of various markets and the demolition of shanties across the state since the resumption of duty, noted that subsequent violations will attract the permanent closure of these markets.

What the Commissioner is saying

Wahab in his post said,

  • ‘’Ladipo, Oyingbo, Alamutu Ologede, and Ile Epo markets re-opened following full compliance with requisite conditions.
  • ‘’Subsequent violations will attract permanent closure.’’
