Groups cry out over market leader’s harassment



Two groups, the Lagos State Auto-Parts Dealers Association (LASAPDA), Mushin zone and Concerned Citizens and Stakeholders of Papa Ajao/Ladipo Community have cried out over a lingering leadership crisis at the popular Ladipo auto parts market in Mushin, Lagos State,

In a petition to the Lagos House of Assembly and Ministry of Local Government and Community Affairs, the groups noted that the Babaloja of Ladipo market, Alhaji Oladotun Abibu-Oki, was being unnecessarily harassed and intimidated by a rival association established by non-indigenes.

The petition dated April 24, reads: “We appeal to the Lagos House of Assembly to come to our aid in terms of giving recognition to the Babaloja of Ladipo General Market in person of Alhaji Oladotun Abibu-Oki, who was installed by the late Alhaja Abibatu Mogaji on December 22, 2011.”
