Wahab said the markets were sealed by the Lagos Waste Management Authority, LAWMA, operatives in collaboration with Lagos Environmental Sanitation Corps, LAGESC, and Kick Against Indiscipline, KAI.


He said: “Operatives of LAWMA in conjunction with LAGESC/KAI onSunday sealed five markets in the Mushin and Odi-Olowo Local Council areas.


“They were sealed for contravening provisions of the 2017 Environmental Management Protection law.


“Being aware that PSP operators are in business to make profit and sustain employment, then cash collection must be digitized for transparency
