|Ladipo Market Demolished by abacusCm(m): 3:28pm On Jun 30, 2015|
Some armed men and officials suspected to be working for Mushin Local Government and supported by a team of policemen on Tuesday morning invaded Ladipo Auto Spare Parts Market and demolished shops in the market.
During the demolition exercise, the traders were barred from entering the market in Mushin, Lagos State, western Nigeria, to remove their goods from the shops.
The armed men were battle ready to forestall any resistance from the traders as the demolition was going on.
Traders were also not allowed to get near the entrance into the market as tipper lorries were seen taking sand and gravel into the market to commence work after the demolition.
The chairman of the market and president of the central market union, Comrade Kingsley Ogunor said he was not informed before they came for the demolition which threw the entire market into confusion.
In front of the market gate was a banner placed by those suspected to be behind the demolition with the inscription: Proposed Commercial Development of Mushin, Lagos.
It was also written on the banner that Mushin Local Government in conjunction with a developer known as Total Value Integrated Services Limited is to commence building a modern plaza market in place of the present stalls being demolished.
The duration for the completion of the project is 18 months.
When our reporter visited the market Tuesday morning, some of the traders expressed their surprise over the development and said they were not given any notice, neither was there any court judgment asking them to vacate the stalls.
At the time of this report, the traders had started protesting over the demolition and had moved to the Mushin Council secretariat to complain about what they alleged as illegal demolition.
When our reporter visited the council, the council secretary, Mr Babajide Bello was not around to comment on the matter.
The information officer, Mr Akin Akinwunmi was not also around and did not pick calls at the time of this report.
A developer carried out a similar action some time last year and it did not amount to anything as the traders held on to their stalls.
It was not yet clear if it is the same developer that is behind the latest demolition.

How can the famous Ladipo market be demolished without the traders being informed beforehand! Impossible! This was just the case of Oshodi market traders feigning ignorance years back also. Its for your own good o dear traders.
|Re: Ladipo Market Demolished by Nobody: 3:42pm On Jun 30, 2015|
Good news, they can move to the lagoon if they want illegal structures

this will mark the unfortunate downfall of some marketers.
|Re: Ladipo Market Demolished by Maxymilliano(m): 3:46pm On Jun 30, 2015|
It is out of order to shave someone's head without his consent ...
You don't go about demolishing peoples means of livelihood without a prior notice.
I hope the affected traders will be duly compensated for the loss .

lygn19:demolish Alaba Market? How is that possible? I dey laugh!
Abeg Ojo LG should repair the bad road that leads to Alaba market. Despite the huge tax the traders pay,the LG cannot rehabilitate the tiny road.
What a shame!
|Re: Ladipo Market Demolished by Nobody: 3:49pm On Jun 30, 2015|
Beremx:very soon we wud know who owns Lagos, if u re not comfortable with it, go back to ur state.
|Re: Ladipo Market Demolished by Beremx(f): 3:57pm On Jun 30, 2015|
lygn19:O yes! it is your father that owns lagos. I agree with you.
That doesnt make you more of a lagosian than me.
Demolishing Alaba market for what purpose? You want authorities of Ojo LG and Olojo of Ojo to protest? The highest LASG can do is to relocate the market.
|Re: Ladipo Market Demolished by Nobody: 3:58pm On Jun 30, 2015|
If this is true, then I must say Ambo is threading the wrong path... Just yesterday he demolished every shop/kiosk around Tejuosho market...
whatever his vision 2019 is he should know that the whole of Lagos can't be Like Lekki/V.i
|Re: Ladipo Market Demolished by Nobody: 4:02pm On Jun 30, 2015|
Maxymilliano:Did you just type COMPE.......
They will not even hear SORRY.....
For Now, I think Ambo has misplaced Priorities....
For someone who just became a gov.. 30days after all you can think of is to demolish...

The foolishness of the igbos not coming out to vote out apc in lagos is now yielding result.

No Problem! Jimi Agbaje Will Build Another Market For Us!
JK Is Ok!
|Re: Ladipo Market Demolished by Maxymilliano(m): 4:12pm On Jun 30, 2015|
From the report, the demolition was a connivance between Mushin LG and a certain developer, not the State.
What made it worse was that the helpless traders were barred from gaining entry into the complex to salvage whatever they could.
That's pathetic ...
|Re: Ladipo Market Demolished by Nobody: 4:23pm On Jun 30, 2015|
Maxymilliano:I think the state govt should interfere 'cos it is just annoying that a developer will inconvenience a lot of people because he has money.....
There is another market around yaba, tejuosho market.it has been commissioned almost a year now and it is virtually empty...when the cheapest shop goes for #5mill...
|Re: Ladipo Market Demolished by PenSniper: 4:50pm On Jun 30, 2015|
But at least not a demon.
|Re: Ladipo Market Demolished by PenSniper: 4:56pm On Jun 30, 2015|
When did you become the spokesman for Ojo LG and Olojo of Ojo ? Better be preparing to issue ultimatum and to run to ICC through that jobless, quack dr. from Imo.
|Re: Ladipo Market Demolished by PenSniper: 4:58pm On Jun 30, 2015|
Mind your own business in your own father's land.
|Re: Ladipo Market Demolished by PenSniper: 5:00pm On Jun 30, 2015|
So they didn't come out ehn ? Did you really believe yourself ? Learn never to start what you can't finish.

PenSniper:shut the hell up! I will not exchange words with ethnic bigots. I have made my points and that's it!
|Re: Ladipo Market Demolished by PenSniper: 5:02pm On Jun 30, 2015|
On the lagoon. Apply early.
|Re: Ladipo Market Demolished by PenSniper: 5:07pm On Jun 30, 2015|
Dont get worked up. Never make a bluff you can't back up if called. Our planned Lagos Mega has no room for chanties like you have in Aba and Onitsha. Live with that. This is payback time, dummy.

Some of us didn't read the story well or maybe its me. These people were giving notice last year but they protested against the eviction. Lagos can be no man's land but the law will be every bodies law. Some i think the previous government have been very generous.
