Lagos Police Command To Dislodge Traders, Hawkers From Roads And Walkways
Lagos State Acting Commissioner of Police, Imohimi Edgal, has ordered his officials to dislodge traders, and hawkers from roads and walkways.
The order is to reduce traffic gridlock around markets in the state.
The police boss expressed dissatisfaction over activities of traders, who indiscriminately display their wares on roads and walkways, thereby obstructing traffic.
Imohimi, who spoke via spokesman of the state’s taskforce, Adebayo Taofiq, said that activities of the street traders not only hindered free flow of traffic, but also gave room for miscreants and hoodlums to attack motorists while in traffic around major markets.
