Lagos State Government has shut down a popular department store in Ikeja, for allegedly selling expired products to members of the public. The store was sealed during a sting operation as part of the ongoing zero tolerance on unwholesome items across the state.
Recall that barely a month ago, the agency sealed two major supermarkets found displaying expired products on their shelves for sales at GRA, Ikeja. In the latest operation, officials of the Lagos State Consumer Protection Agency, LASCOPA, stormed the grocery store and sealed the premises to prevent further sales of the products to members of the public.
In a statement, LASCOPA General Manager, Mr. Afolabi Solebo, confirmed that during an inspection exercise carried out by the Monitoring and Enforcement team of the agency, expired products were discovered and confiscated from the store.
He warned grocery stores and supermarkets across the state to desist from sales of unwholesome products or face the full wrath of the law accordingly.
