Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu-led Lagos State Government has announced the shutting down of the Alamutu Market at Idioro, also in Mushin Local Government Area of the state over poor sanitation and inefficient waste disposal practices.
The Commissioner for Environment and Water Resources, Tokunbo Wahab, who made this known in a post on X (formerly Twitter) on Tuesday said that the market was sealed on Tuesday on his directive.
The Commissioner wrote, “On my directives, #Lawma_gov (Lagos State Waste Management Authority) earlier today (3rd of October) sealed up Alamutu (Ologede) market at Idioro, Mushin due to its poor sanitary conditions and inefficient waste disposal practices.”
Recall that KOKO TV NG reported Friday last week that the Commissioner ordered the immediate closure of Ladipo Market in the Mushin area of the state for several environmental offences including reckless waste disposal, unhygienic premises and non-payment of waste bills.
The State government had also announced a total ban on street trading and hawking across the state, adding that the ban also included erecting illegal structures on drainage systems and displaying of wares and other commodities on walkways.
Wahab had said that the move was part of the state government’s renewed effort to ensure a cleaner, safer, and healthy environment, and that the ban is aimed at curtailing the multiple nefarious activities allegedly perpetrated by hawkers who disguise to rob motorists and street traders who disrupt the free flow of traffic on highways and streets in the state.
