Popular Ladipo market shut down by Lagos State Government
The popular Ladipo auto spare parts market in Mushin, Lagos was on Monday shut down by the Lagos State Government.
Officials of the Lagos State Taskforce on Environmental and Special Offences (Enforcement), led by its Chairman, Bayo Sulaiman, stormed the market as early as 4am on Monday.
The market was shut down following the filthy nature of its environment and alleged refusal of the traders to keep it clean, despite several warnings by the state environment officials.
During his visit to the market recently, the Commissioner for Environment, Tunji Bello decried the terrible state of the market environment, describing it as worrisome.
The traders were dispersed by taskforce officials with several canisters of teargas being shot into the air to ward them off. Hundreds of policemen were on ground to keep the traders away from attacking the task-force officials.
