Traders Who Disobeyed Stay At Home Directive Lose Their Goods

Lagos state government directed that everyone stays at home to curb the spread of Coronavirus but some people disobeyed and opened their shops....

Their wares were destroyed on Saturday by the Lagos state task force!








This so freaking wrong!!

Why not load the food in the shop and seal if off?Or even dash it out to passers by....

    1. It is easy to say that when you have what to eat but what of some of us that depends on our shop. What do we do, who don't like resting but rest without food is like prison abeg. We care about our health but no money.

    2. Too bad. Destroying their wares is so barbaric!

  2. Very barbaric people!!!

    They sell food that's why they came out!!

    We're suffering from plenty problems in this Nigeria!!!

    Even if they are not a good store, why destroy their wares?? Why??? Mental illiteracy is the worst type of illiteracy to deal with 😩😩😩😩😩

  3. Useless and incompetent government. What provision have you make for these poor people while you expect them to stay at home without source of income.
    My heart breaks for them. People are already living in abject poverty with barely a meal a day, now they’re expected to stay home indefinitely without means of livelihood.

    1. They stay home- they die, they go out- they die. They should stay home and die, its better than getting infected and dying on the streets.

    2. In the first place getting infected with Coronavirus does not mean you must die. In fact, you are most likely to survive without any symptoms. We should understand that economic health is as important as physical health.
      The government is supposed to make provisions if they are going to order people to stay home without adequate notice.
      Besides, if everybody is asked to stay home including food vendors, how do you think you will survive social isolation.

  5. I bought eggs from this particular Woman yesterday and few seconds when i drove away,i saw the Taskforce coming,Her stall is in front of shops in the Barracks( Ijeh Barracks @ Obalende)
    When Task forces came with 4 trucks,the Market women selling along the Road ran towards the Barracks gate, Some of the Taskforce came down and started chasing them,and the Women ran into the Barracks, The taskforce Men wanted to still arrested the Women,So the Young boys in the Barracks came out and engaged them by throwing Stones/ Bottles @ them( Taskforce)
    The Task forces retaliated by shooting Canisters of Teargas into the Area .
    This Particular Egg woman ran away and when she returned her Crates of Eggs had been Shattered on the Ground.
    Barracks Youths actually caused this unrest,If they had appealed to the Taskforce instead of throwing bottles/ stones@ them, Maybe this wont have happened.
    I just spoke with this Egg woman and she said" Aunty see my eyes,i get to Run away when them dey throw Teargas. I asked her if she will be compensated and she said Police people don come talk with me,They say them go come back.
    Violence never pays,innocent people are always casualty of Violence.

    3. I don't know why Naija matter is always different.Grocery stores and eateries are open un us and other countries with stay at home order. Just buy and go home. No seating and eating at restaurants.essential goods ate exempted from stay at home. People will soon riot and start killing these ignorant task force. What rubbish. People should die or what. Always over doing things.

    4. Phoenix it’s not right what they did but here in the US, stalls aren’t on the street. They are in secure buildings and have to follow guidelines such as daily disinfecting.
      The problem
      Is these market women don’t know any better. They don’t observe any social distancing, they aren’t disinfecting. It causes people to congregate which defeats the matter!! Unless we stop this, IG will spread further in the community, and maybe it’s when we see people dropping like flies on the street, that we will get it!!!
      Said as a US doctor on the frontline who sees COVID patients when it gets bad!!!

    5. But our market has always been on the streets, and not in a secured building. So how are people meant to feed? Come to America?

  6. This is expected when you have a bunch of illiterates as police men.

    Don't they know the meaning of essential goods.

    Making people lose money in this critical period.

    It shall not be well with any officer causing hardship on others

  9. If you talk now they will say these are the only words Nigerian citizens hear, are we not a product of our leaders, if education was provided for all dont you think most of them will understand a clear directive, if poverty wasnt a problem, do you think these people will be outside hawking? If governmemt atleast disbursed bail out money to all, do you think they will be outside? Muslims in Katsina are causing mayhem why cant they go there to show their poweress abi it stops at non violent people? This country sha. Like Stella said, ask them to pay a fine or seal up their stores till further notice.

  10. Why is this happening. Food and water vendors and drugs stores are permitted to be open or is Lagos under total lockdown now? Why are they acting outside the regulations. Rice, eggs, and others shouldn't be on the floor. It's sad.

  11. This is part of why I feel little or no pity for ex uniformed officers who are denied pensions or living in poverty. A military minion once pointed a loaded AK-47 at my mother's head because she implored him not to drive his truck against traffic. The truck full of fellow soldiers did stop him and this is the character of these abusive predators roaming Nigeria. What about the police and their tactics of extortion? Their murderous hands killing innocent civilians and raping those wrongly arrested. They Rob and steal in the name of SARS. Even the victims of Boko Haram complain that the soldiers are worse than Boko haram in terms of the way they are treated. The bribe collection by FRSC on the road and Immigration at the airport. Their wickedness harassing travelers for bribe and feeling like mini emperors . Even police murdered a civil defence officer. Soldiers kill and beat police. Police will in turn rent their guns to thieves... It's all abuse of power... Weep not for them. They may be reaping their reward.

    1. Essential goods are exempted all over the world. Stupid Nigerian leaders wants to starve people to death.

  13. Illiteracy is a problem.
    Even if they weren’t selling food, tell them to close the shop and go home and warn that they’ll be arrested if found wanting a second time.

    In this era where food is getting scarce, and people don’t have nutritious food to eat, see how they wasted immune boosting eggs.
    The govt relief Lagos state arranged no get protein oh. Rice, garri, carbs, carbs and more carbs...not like it won’t help but they shouldn’t worsen the food supply situation.
    I feel like knocking sense into these task force people.

  14. I know times are hard..
    But they would Have @least obeyed d govt.. it's still for our own good..

  16. These ones tried by destroying the goods ,but the Police in Featac , went to Agboju market, by 23road, on 26th March with their Hilux truck & carted away food stuffs & drinks into their van , while the Governor said that those selling food items are exempted. See tears from these traders.

  17. Because you can afford to stay home,some people might not be that financially strong,live by the days effort...if incentives can be given for this period, then quote me..anyone found should be jailed along with your wares

    ReplyDelete
  18. I don't want to cry abeg.

    Others keep pursuing them until they listen. Not start throwing away and destroying their goods.

    Do they think they don't want to stay home??? How will these petty traders feed? Why are they not doing anything to ensure they have every reason to stay home.

    Some of them came to make the 1k they will use to cook that night. Seriously, we need to have mercy sometimes

  19. This is bad now. See eggs, although they sold a crate for 1800 yesterday n I was angry.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Thought only those that sells food items are allowed to open. This is wasteful!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Am sorry but stay at home will not work in Nigeria. People will be starved to death. They better focus on safety measures other than stay at home. At least the stay at home shouldn't include essential goods

    ReplyDelete
  22. Task force and police,the Lagos government exempted food sellers and pharmacies .It is clearly stated.Is that the task force or Police didnot not read it or they are overdoing things as usual

    ReplyDelete
  23. But same Lagos State Govt is opening Schools for food sales nau. and I thought the ban is not on food sellers. The message looks ambiguous to me then.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Simple instruction, stay at home. They dont care about human life?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Lagos state directive said that anyone selling food was allowed to sell though, so why oppress these women? Did they only mean supermarkets? This is unfair
