Several shops earlier today were shut down at Tech hub, Computer Village, Ikeja, Lagos following a protest against alleged planned installation of female and male market leaders “Iyaoloja” and “Babaloja”,
An Information Communication Technology (ICT) engineer, Wasiu Agbaje, said that the hub was not like the regular markets where leaders are imposed on traders.
Mr Agbaje said: “What does the Iyaoloja and Babaloja have to offer, what value are they going to add to the hub? And what technological innovations are they bringing?“The computer village is not like any other street market where pepper and other things are sold.”
Software developer, Joseph Efosa, said that such installation would disturb the 25 years of peaceful existence of the hub.Mr Efosa said that computer village was not a regular market and such installation was unnecessary.
