Following the refusal of some traders at the popular Ladipo market, Mushin to recognise the new Baba Oloja as the leader of the market, armed soldiers and policemen have been drafted to the Market to keep things under check as tension brew at the market.

A combined force of armed soldiers and mobile policemen were seen at the market this morning at strategic points to forestall a breakdown of law and order.

Many of the traders however feigned ignorance of why security agents were deployed to the market.

President-General of Ladipo Auto Central Executive Committee, LACEC, Mr. Ikechukwu Animalu who spoke on the presence of heavily armed men at the market said the men were brought to the market by the new Baba Oloja, Alhaji Oki, to take control of the market.

He said he got information yesterday that Oki had mobilised soldiers, policemen and members of OPC to take over the market, an information he immediately intimated the Area ‘D’ Commander, Mushin and the state command of, adding that the matter was being investigated.

Animalu said he advised the traders to remain calm when he was told this morning that armed security personnel had been deployed to the market, while he reiterated the stand of the traders not to recognise the new Baba Oloja.

“We will not recognise him. If he wants to lead the market, he should wait for my tenure to expire and then contest for the leadership of the market,” he stated.
