The Ladipo and Oyingbo marketplaces would be closed indefinitely, according to the Lagos State Government.
The reckless rubbish dumping, nonpayment of services, and general subpar waste management were all denounced by the Lagos Waste Management Authority (LAWMA).
Ibrahim Odumboni, the MD/CEO, said on Thursday that the markets would be closed beginning on September 22.
Odumboni criticized dealers for engaging in unhealthy environmental activities despite repeated warnings.
The official claimed that they had continued “the senseless environmental infraction” in spite of abatement notices.
“We are forced to shut down the markets in order to enforce the appropriate penalties.
“This is also intended to act as a warning to other casual markets,”
The MD promised that his organization will make sure that all markets in Lagos were operated in a hygienic and secure manner.
Odumboni mentioned that the organization had been sending out vehicles to clean dark areas throughout the city.
He bemoaned how those who would prefer dump trash on the road than pay for services were undermining government efforts.
Odumboni cautioned vendors in other areas to properly follow environmental hygiene regulations or risk having their markets permanently closed.
