Mile 12 traders, others relocated to Ogere

15 March 2016, 07:38

Abuja - The Ogun State Government has announced the relocation of traders from the popular Mile 12 market from the Kara LGA to Ogere, Punch has reported.

According to a statement released by State Governor Ibikunle Amosun on Sunday, the traders have been provided with approximately 300 hectares of land in Ogere, with the process of relocation having started on Friday.

The closure of the Mile 12 market due to clashes has left many traders destitute and loaded with goods that cannot be sold.

Following the closure, traders were relocated from Lagos to Kara LGA in Ogun State where they were told they would again be relocated as the space in Kara was not suitable for a market.

In addition to the Mile 12 traders, those from the Kara Market will also be relocated in the process.

Adejuwon Soyinka, Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Media, has since confirmed that the new location is ready for occupation by the traders.
