Business activities have been placed at a standstill in some areas in Ibadan after the explosion that occurred in the city on Tuesday.
It is no news that there was an explosion at Dejo Oyelese Close, Bodija Housing Estate in Ibadan on Tuesday 16 January, 2024.
A correspondent of Daily Post, who visited the location surrounding the explosion, reported that businesses in the areas have been closed since the accident, and traders have since been counting their losses.
No thanks to the accident, dozens of shops, restaurants, offices, especially those in close proximity to the old and new Bodija were affected by the explosion which claimed many lives and caused injuries.
Only a few shops and offices within Bodija managed to open for business as of the time of this report.
A trader who asked not to be named said he shut down his business premises following the incident. “We have closed the shop. Some of us have been affected”.
An elderly man also told DAILY POST that his office was affected. “My office has been affected. My office is close to this place. We have closed it. I just managed to come here to see what is happening here.”
