Lagos State seals Alade Market in Ikeja


The Lagos State government has sealed the popular Alade Market in Onigbongbo LCDA in Ikeja.

This was disclosed on Wednesday by the Senior Special Assistant on New Media to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Jubril Gawat, on his X account.

Gawat said the market was sealed due to several environmental infractions such as a lack of waste bins, a filthy environment, and the illegal burning of refuse by the roadside.

He further stated that indiscriminate dumping of refuse and failure to comply with the rules of the Lagos State Waste Management Authority (LAWMA) are other reasons for the closure.

Alade Market is the latest popular market in the state to be closed down due to environmental issues.

Recall that LagosPost reported that the Alaba International Market, along the Lagos-Badagry Expressway, was closed down on Monday.

Commissioner, Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources, Lagos State, Tokunbo Wahab attributed the market closure to poor waste disposal practices, failure to pay their waste bills, and gross environmental sanitation offences.

Meanwhile, other markets such as Ladipo Market, Agbado Oke-Odo Market, Oyingbo Market, Alayabiagba Market, Alamutu (Ologede) Market and sections of Tejuosho Market that were closed down have since been re-opened.
