Police allegedly destroy food items in Obalende market despite government waiver for food sellers

Nigerians on social media have accused the police of destroying food stuff at Obalende Market, Lagos State.

The action was reportedly carried out due to the lockdown order by the Lagos State Governement in an effort to curb the spread of coronavirus and facilitate social distancing.

This is despite the fact that the Lagos state government exempted traders who specialize in the sale of essential items like foodstuff, medical supplies and other necessary commodity from the ban.

The photos making the rounds on social media however, tell a different story as the destruction caused by the Law Enforcement Agencies was damning.
