Lagos State Government Warns Roadside Vendors

The traders who indiscriminately advertise their goods on the sidewalks along Oshodi Road have received a warning from the Lagos State Task Force.

The task force’s chairman, Shola Jejeloye, issued a warning that anyone caught selling goods on the walkways would now be detained and prosecuted.

Abdulraheem Gbadeyan, the agency’s Director of Press and Public Affairs, issued a statement in which the task force also announced that it would seize automobiles belonging to those who disobey traffic laws.

The statement read;

“We carried out an enforcement exercise on March 9 this year where some goods were seized from the traders and vehicles were impounded from some commercial bus drivers but we had compassion on the traders and some drivers, who had purchased some of the goods through soft loans with the promise that they would not return to the roadside again.

“Unfortunately, we can see that they are fully back on the road, but this time, anyone who is caught displaying goods by the roadside will be arrested and prosecuted by the agency.

“Commercial vehicle operators who are known to be unruly and have total disregard for road traffic rules will henceforth be arrested and have their vehicles impounded if they do not turn over a new leaf.”
