“Alaba International Market, Ojo has been sealed up for poor waste disposal practices, failure to pay their waste bills, and gross environmental sanitation offences,” he wrote on X.
The closure is the latest in the shutting down of markets and demolition of illegal structures by the Lagos State Government.
It recently sealed but later reopened the Mile 12 International Market. The Owode Onirin Market along Ikorodu Road also faced a similar fate for indiscriminate waste disposal.
The Lagos State Government had equally shut the Ladipo Auto Parts Market and other markets for environmental infractions.
The Lagos State Government on Sunday shut down the Auto Spare Parts and Machinery Dealers Association (ASPAMDA) market and other markets within the Lagos International Trade Fair Complex in Ojo Local Government Area for alleged environmental infractions.
Officials of the Lagos Waste Management Authority (LAWMA), in partnership with the Lagos Task Force on Environmental Sanitation and Special Offenses and the Lagos Environmental Sanitation Corps (LAGESC), carried out the enforcement as part of the ongoing clampdown on environmental nuisance.
The Director of Public Affairs at the Ministry of Environment and Water Resources, Kunle Adeshina, confirmed the enforcement on his X handle, formerly Twitter.
According to Adeshina, the agencies carried out the directive from the Commissioner for Environment and Water Resources, Tokunbo Wahab.
