The Ondo State Government has sealed off Shoprite and the neighborhood market in Akure, the Ondo State capital.
The popular facilities were sealed on Monday by the Ondo State Waste Management Authority, ODSWMA, over what was described as unsanitary and unhygienic practices.

Shoprite, which is located on Igbatoro road in Akure and the Neighborhood market at NEPA axis of the State capital, were accused of ignoring a series of warnings from the agency.
The General Manager of the Authority Mrs Ayo Adeyemo, who disclosed this, said the owners of the affected facilities violated environmental laws and failed to comply with the laid down hygienic practices.
Adeyemo, who maintained that further sanctions would be taken, warned that anyone found culpable will not be spared.
