Three firemen of the Lagos State Fire and Rescue Service were reportedly injured and a fire engine of the Agency damaged by hoodlums, who attacked the officials in the course of duty on Sunday.

The Lagos State Government, over the weekend, reminded market leaders and artisans in the Lagos West Senatorial District to be mindful of the effect of their business activities on the environment.
He expressed dissatisfaction that over the years, most markets and motor parks across the metropolis had been in a sorry state because of the attitude of the market occupiers as well as mechanics and transport workers generally.
“We must stop littering our market and motor parks with wastes, we must sort our wastes in our respective markets; bag our wastes and ensure we patronise PSP operators, stop creating illegal dumpsites on road medians, kerbs, open spaces, and road setbacks”, Bello emphasised.
