Contrary to the news being bandied about on social media that the popular Alaba International Market in Ojo area of Lagos State was razed by fire on Friday, destroying properties worth millions, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, the Lagos State Police PRO, has refuted the claim on his Twitter handle.
The Police PRO wrote, “This is a false narrative! Acting on credible information, police officers from Ojo Division raided shanties around the market, arrested suspected criminals and recovered some weapons. The shanties were thereafter set on fire. Alaba Int’l Market is NOT on fire!”
