Security Operatives Enforce market Closure Order in Akure
There has been total compliance with the market closure order in Akure today Wednesday.
The Ondo State government in a bid to prevent the entry of the coronavirus had ordered a total shutdown of all markets after traders and residents failed to comply strictly with an earlier directive.
Radio Nigeria correspondent who visited Isinkan, Neighbourhood and Oba markets all in the metropolis sighted a handful of security operatives enforcing the closure.
Traders of food items who had converged on the popular Arakale Motor Park to ply their trade following their relocation a few days ago were not allowed as law enforcement agents turned them back.
The traders were later seen standing in groups around the marketplace.
Residents who also came for shopping at the Motor Park were disappointed as there were no perishable goods on display.
The situation has culminated in a free flow of vehicles along the ever-busy Arakale Road.
