The Lagos State Government on Saturday reopened the Alaba International Market and some markets at the Trade Fair Complex, in Ojo.
The markets were shut down earlier this week over improper waste management and other environmental offences.
Mr Tokunbo Wahab, the Lagos State Commissioner for the Environment and Water Resources, who announced the reopening of the markets said they were reopened after the environmental issues had been addressed.
The commissioner dismissed claims being peddled in some quarters that the closure of the markets had ethnic and political motives.
He stressed that the closure of the markets was a step taken to ensure a clean and healthy environment around business facilities.
