Govt Seals Off Shoprite, Another Popular Market (See why)

The Ondo State Government has sealed off Shoprite Supermarket and a neighborhood market in Akure, Ondo State.

Infoexpert24 reports that Shoprite was sealed on Monday by the Ondo State Waste Management Authority (ODSWMA) over what it described as “unhygienic practices”.

The reason for the government’s action is believed to be due to the flouting of the environmental laws of Ondo state.

The General Manager of the Authority Mrs. Ayo Adeyemo, who disclosed this, said the owners of the affected facilities violated environmental laws and failed to comply with the laid down hygienic practices.

Adeyemo, who maintained that further sanctions would be taken, warned that anyone found culpable will not be spared.
