Following the closure of markets due to noncompliance with environmental hygiene, the Lagos State Government has reopened five markets – Ladipo, Oyingbo, Alamutu Ologede, and Ile Epo.

Commissioner for environment and water resources, Tokunbo Wahab, made this known in a statement on his X handle on Monday.

Among the offences were reckless waste disposal, unhygienic premises and non-payment of waste bills, among others.

According to Wahab, the markets were re-opened following full compliance with requisite conditions.

He, however, warned that subsequent violations will attract permanent closure.
