Mile 12 Market traders seek security outfit to check street urchins

By Aliyu DANLADI

The Mile 12 Market Traders Association has appealed to  the Lagos State Government to situate a security outfit within the market to ward off the activities of street urchins.

TBI Africa said Femi Odusanya, the spokesperson for the association, made the appeal in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday in Lagos.

He said that regular fighting between street urchins and officials of the Lagos State Government between  Owode and Kosofe area often disrupt trading activities at the market.

Odusanya said that due to the ensuing violence, most traders out of fear of their wares and money being looted locked up their stores for safety.

“The situation is saddening because no fewer than  20,000 people visit  Mile 12 market daily and anytime we shut the market for just one hour, we lose about N100 million.

“We appeal to the government to situate an armoured personnel vehicle and security officials around the area to forestall further incidents,” he said.
