Dei-Dei Market Crisis: FCT Minister Orders Immediate Closure

Following the Dei-Dei market crisis that occurred yesterday in the area, Mohammed Bello, Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, has ordered the immediate shutdown of the Dei-Dei International Market, pending when the security operatives unravel the true cause of the chaos.

According to the Minister, the clash between the affected parties in the area led to the untimely deaths of no fewer than four people, which he claimed to have seen their bodies with his eyes.

Alhaji Bello, on Wednesday, believed the best option to reduce the tension in the area was to give the directive for indefinite closure of the busy market due to the alleged fight between commercial motorcyclists and the traders.

He gave the order after inspecting the scene of the incident alongside the FCT Commissioner of Police, Sunday Babaji, Director of State Security Services, other sister security agencies and top officials of the FCT Administration.
