Ikeja Shoprite Shutdown Over Breach of Safety Law

The Lagos State Safety Commission on Friday shutdown the Ikeja Shoprite leaving many customers stranded as commercial activities within the big complex came to a halt. 
 
The Lagos State Safety Commission has shut the multi-national shopping outlet, Shoprite located at the Ikeja Shopping Mall, Ikeja, Lagos, southwest Nigeria, for allegedly breaching safety law, PMNEWs reports.
 
Officials of the commission were said to have stormed Shoprite on Friday afternoon and drove everyone out and sealed off the massive premises, placing a seal order at the entrance.
 
The seal order notice read: “Sealed, this premises has been sealed following the breach of safety law. This seal must not be broken. For further enquiries, contact the Commission.”
 
According to a reliable source, the cause of the closure was as a result of complaints by members of the public about adulterated and expired products being sold in the outlet, adding that investigation was also carried out before the place was shut.
 
According to PMNEWS, a customer who craved anonymity, said she once bought expired milk at Shoprite, saying that the closure of the outlet was long overdue. There have also been complaints by others about expired products at various Shoprite outlets. 
 
Officials of Shoprite have been asked to report at the commission’s office on Monday while the outlet remains shut throughout the weekend
