Ikorodu garage earlier today deserted due to planned June 12 rally.

There was lull in commercial and social activities in Ikorodu today due to the planned June 12 protest which, as at the time of filing this report, has failed to hold in any part of the Ikorodu Division of Lagos State, Southwest, Nigeria.

Most major roads in Ikorodu were deserted while few vehicles were seen on the road as most shops were under lock and key.

Markets too were shut as sellers and buyers stayed back in their respective houses, except at the Allison market where some market women displayed their wares.

There was also no presence of policemen outside, especially at strategic locations except for a patrol van that was seen approaching the Ikorodu garage while our reporter was leaving the area.

Major roads like Awolowo Way, Oba Omolaja Ogunlewe Road, Odofin road, Igbogbo – Ipakodo road among others visited today were deserted with little activity.
