After a conflict between Okada and traders, the FCT minister shutters the Dei-Dei market.

Following a conflict between commercial motorcyclists (Okada) and traders, FCT Minister Mohammad Bello ordered the indefinite closure of Dei – Dei International Market on Wednesday.

After examining the incident scene with FCT Commissioner of Police Sunday Babaji, Director of State Security Services, other sister security agencies, and top FCT Administration officials, Bello issued the order.

Trouble began in the market when an unidentified female trader fell off a commercial motorcycle and was killed by an articulated vehicle.

The minister ordered the community and market leaders to find the hoodlums who had caused the catastrophe.

“Community and market leaders must weed out hoodlums and bad apples among them; regrettably, hoodlums are armed this time.”

In fact, I came across four bodies. This is extremely sad and completely unacceptable in Abuja.

“We’ve agreed with security services to conduct full-scale investigations, and the communities must be a part of the solution or there will be no peace.”

“In the meanwhile, the timber market and adjacent markets, as well as any activities that have clogged the road and rendered it impassable, will all come to a halt until the technical team examines everything, at which point we will make the next choice.”

Bello said that there were no ethnic or religious differences because all of the leaders of the various tribes had lived in harmony for many years.

“It’s just a matter of criminals and hoodlums taking over.”
