A few shops were opened and others remained closed on Thursday afternoon in Ikorodu due to the traditional Oro festival scheduled to be held in the town.
It was learnt that the festival would be held at night, starting at 8 p.m.
Our correspondent observed cars and motorcycles plying the major routes in Ikorodu unhindered.
Unlike other days, there were few people on the road as most were still anxious over the news that the Oro Festival would be held, so they decided to stay indoors.
Many shops around Ikorodu Garage were seen closed, including the market, which had only a few traders with their goods out to sell, with some of them doing it furtively.
Transport workers, however, were seen operating and Mr. Gbolahan said that movements were not restricted but anyone who intends to go out must ensure they are back indoors before 8 p.m.
“You can go out. There is no restriction on movement. But make sure you come back before 8 or 9 pm. If you cannot make it to Ikorodu before then, then it is advisable that you find somewhere to pass the night elsewhere.”
