The Iyaloja General of Nigeria, Folasade Tinubu-Ojo ( daughter of National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu) has reportedly placed the Otto Modern Market, Oyingbo, Lagos State, on lock and key for the past two weeks over complaints of trading in an untidy environment.

She also imposed a fine of an N5million fine on the traders after giving two days’ ultimatum for them to clean up the premises of the market.

SaharaReporters reports that the traders started protesting on Wednesday after forcefully entering the premises only to discover their goods had gone bad. They also protested the continued insistence on the payment of the fine despite having done proper sanitation of the environment within two days.

In videos shared with SaharaReporters, the traders, obviously affected by the barricade, took to the streets to call for the intervention of the local government to be able to continue with their trading activities.

They displayed banners on which were inscribed, “Folashade Tinubu, Ahmed Tinubu’s daughter, leave Oyingbo market alone. Mainland Local Government, hear our cry. Courtesy: Oyingbo Market Traders.”
