Lagos - The leader of the market in Lagos, Folashade Tinubu-Ojo, has ordered the closure of the markets in protest of the recent abduction of schoolgirls in Chibok, Borno State.
The market women and men called for the immediate and unconditional release of the more than 200 abducted young women.
Addressing journalists during a protest march to Government House, Alausa, Tinubu-Ojo said as a mother, she could imagine the ordeal and traumatic experience the innocent girls would have been subjected to in the hands of their captors.
She therefore called on government and appropriate security agencies not to spare any efforts to track these girls and reunite them with their families as soon as possible.
She also enjoined well-meaning Nigerians, pressure groups, NGO's, religious organizations to sustain issue around the missing school girls until they are effectively rescued.
“Members of the public should be very vigilant about the goings-on in their environment and volunteer information to security agencies at all times," she said.
Suspected members of the notorious Boko Haram sect kidnapped the girls three weeks ago.
