The Lagos State Government on Wednesday demolished the Owonifari Market at Oshodi which has been in existence for more than 40 years.
The Lagos State government had closed the market to curb security challenges within the Oshodi metropolis.
According to the Commissioner for
Information and Strategy, Mr. Steve Ayorinde, the move was geared towards the need to sanitise and beautify the Oshodi
area and bring transformation, in particular, to the Owonifari area, as well as the entire bus stop terminal, which had been constituting a menace and an eyesore in the locality.
However, traders are lamenting at the destruction of their shops, as they are said to have lost goods worth millions of Naira
