Just In: LASG Seals Daleko, Ojuwoye Markets, 3 Others In Mushin

The Lagos state government, on Sunday morning, sealed five markets in Mushin and Odi-Olowo local council areas over environmental infractions by the traders.

This was disclosed by the Commissioner for Environment and Water Resources, Mr Tokunbo Wahab, on his X handle.

Wahab said the markets were sealed for contravention of the provisions of 2017 Environmental Management Protection Law.

The sealed markets were; Awolowo Ultra Modern Market Ojuwoye, Ojuwoye Market Odi-Olowo, Mushin Main Market, Daleko Market, and Odo Ashimowu Market.

Wahab tweeted “As I instructed, operatives of Lagos Waste Management Authority @Lawma_gov in conjunction with @LAGESCOfficial (KAI) in the early hours of today, November 12, sealed 5 markets in the Mushin and Odi-Olowo Local Council areas”.

It would be recalled that for some months now, the state government had sealed markets over environmental infractions.

The markets were later reopened by the state government after the traders pledged to abide by the provisions of the 2017 environmental law.
