#NigeriaDecides: Police reveals why Lagos markets are closed on Monday

The Public Relations Officer, Lagos State Command, Benjamin Hundeyin, has explained why markets have been closed for two days.

According to him, the market association agreed that the shops would remain closed Sunday and Monday.

Hundeyin was responding to a Twitter user @VictorIsrael_, who wrote that “Emergency information.

“APC thugs are on the rampage on the streets of Lagos because Peter Obi won Tinubu.

“In Abibu Oki street off Broadstreet in Mandilas market Lagos island, they are chasing the Igbos, robbing them and destroying properties.”

Hundeyin quoted the tweet and wrote: “This is fake news. The market association agreed that shops would remain closed yesterday and today.

“Igbo traders this morning decided to renege on the agreement and open shops.

“Some hoodlums took it upon themselves to enforce compliance. The police were alerted.

“The police arrived promptly. The hoodlums fled upon sighting police patrol vans. Not one shop was vandalized. Not one person was robbed. Not one person was injured. Normalcy was swiftly returned, and officers remain on ground.

“Go and verify!”
