The Lagos State Government has closed down Alaba International Market. The Lagos State Commissioner for Environment, Tokunbo Wahab, has officially confirmed this development.
According to the commissioner, the market was shut down because of issues such as improper waste disposal practices, failure to settle their waste bills, and various serious environmental sanitation violations.
“Alaba International Market, Ojo, has been sealed due to violations related to poor waste management practices, non-payment of waste disposal fees, and severe breaches of environmental sanitation regulations,” stated Tokunbo Wahab.
This closure is the most recent action in a series of market closures and the demolition of unauthorized structures carried out by the Lagos State Government.
The Lagos government recently closed and later reopened the Mile 12 International Market. Similarly, the Owode Onirin Market along Ikorodu Road experienced a similar fate due to indiscriminate waste disposal.
The Lagos State Government has also closed the Ladipo Auto Parts Market and various other markets due to environmental violations.
