Ekiti State Government has ordered the indefinite closure of the popular Fayose market in Ado Ekiti.
The State Commissioner for Commerce, Industries and Cooperatives, Hon. Michael Ayodele who made this known, explained that the development followed an attempt by some unruly traders in the market to cause a breakdown of law and order.
Hon. Ayodele stressed that government can no longer tolerate any form of lawlessness, adding that all stakeholders must be ready to abide by the rules and regulations guiding the conduct of business in the market.
The Commissioner emphasized that the market would remain shut until the traders express readiness to stop obstructing access roads and work-ways with their goods.
He condemned the attack on officials and members of the task force responsible for maintaining law and order in the market.
