The Lagos State Safety Commission on Friday shut down the Shoprite store located at the Ikeja Shopping Mall, Lagos.
The commission has now revealed why it took the drastic action, citing the shopping outlet’s breach of safety laws as their reason.
Officials of the commission stormed the store on Friday, ordering everyone to leave before they sealed off the premises, and placed a seal order at the entrance.
The seal order notice says: “Sealed, this premises has been sealed following the breach of safety law. This seal must not be broken. For further enquiries, contact the Commission.”
An investigation was said to have been carried out by the commission before Shoprite was closed on Friday.
It was also revealed that the commission discovered items on the shelves, that would expire in a couple of weeks.
