Mile 12 market partly reopened amid tight security

07 March 2016, 21:37Israel Ojoko

Lagos - The popular Mile 12 market that was shut down due to a bloody clash on Thursday has been partially opened amid tight security.

A visit by News24 to the market on Monday found that one of the two major entrance gates was opened, with operations still skeletal.

The sales of tomatoes, pepper and onion is yet to fully resume, and so was the case with yam and potatoes.

There seems to be buying and selling down inside the market with military men patrolling to ensure safety of lives and properties.

Police men were also seen in strategic places around the market as peace seems to have finally returned.

Government had shut down the popular Mile 12 market and impose a curfew in crisis hotspots in a way of curtailing the disaster.

No fewer than ten people were reportedly killed, with houses and cars burnt in the crisis last week.
