18 Traders Face Lagos Court For Selling At Unauthorised Spots
The Lagos state government continues to enforce its resolve to make residents follow the rules of a modern city if they want to continue living in the state.
These traders had been arrested before but got released based on a written 'under-taken' with the Lagos Task Force not to go back to selling at unauthorised places around the 'Trade Fair' complex.
But some 18 of them failed their promise and they have been re-arrested and charged to court.
Head of Public Affairs Unit for the Lagos State Task Force, Adebayo Taofiq revealed this on Sunday.
He said that these traders after their release by the agency went back to be displaying and selling their wares at same illegal spots around the 'Trade Fair' complex.
After their arraignment at the court, five of them were asked to pay a fine of N5000 each to the government while the remaining 13 females were committed to '48 hours Community Service' each as a punishment by the court.
The statement also announced the arrest of 62 persons around Oshodi and its environ over the weekend by operatives of the Lagos State Task Force.
He described them as miscreants and hoodlums and said that they were arrested during an overnight raid operation.
The Chairman of Agency, CSP Olayinka Egbeyemi disclosed that the midnight raid was part of ongoing efforts aimed at flushing out miscreants and other criminal elements out of Oshodi and the state at large.
