Govt Warns Against Indiscriminate Buying, Selling During Sallah


The Lagos State Environmental Sanitation Corps has warned against indiscriminate buying and selling on the road during the Sallah festival.

The Corps Marshal of the agency, CP Gbemisola Akinpelu (retd), in a statement on Monday, said the government would particularly ensure that there was no impediment in the Oyingbo area.

She explained that the activities of traders who occupied most part of the road whenever offloading their goods, usually resulted in gridlock.

According to the statement, the traffic spreads to the Oyingbo market area and the Lagos Mainland.

“The corps marshal said the agency was deploying advocacy and sensitisation programmes in and around the Lagos Mainland Local Government Area to ensure general cleanliness of the roads and free vehicular movement in the state.

“She noted with dismay and action will be taken against any erring individual or group of persons,” the statement added.
