Traders at the popular Ladipo auto spare parts market have continued in their defiance against a ‘Baba Oloja’ aka market leader imposed upon them by the Mushin Local Council.
The President -General of Ladipo Auto Central Executive Committee, LACEC, Mr. Ikechukwu Animalu, says that his association will not accept one Alhaji Oki who was nominated by the council to lead the market.
Animalu said “We will not recognise him. If he wants to lead the market, he should wait for my tenure to expire and then contest for the leadership of the market.”
He also told reporters that it was Oki that summoned Army and Police operatives seen in the area today.
Operatives of OP-MESA were seen in their vehicle with registration number DD 47 KTU positioned in front of the Warehouse A.
Also seen in the market were about 15 pick up vans with armed mobile policemen. Operatives of SARS were also on ground.
