Court Supends Demolition Of Lawanson Market

A Lagos state high court has suspended the planned demolition of Lawanson market in the Mushin Local government area of Lagos.

The Lagos state government plans to demolish the market for the purpose of redevelopment but the shop owners at the Ladipo market have disagreed and asked the court to restrain the Local government authorities from demolishing the market.

After hearing arguments from both sides, Justice Iyabo Akinkugbe ordered both sides to maintain status quo pending the determination of the main suit and adjourned till August 4, 2015.
