Goodbye to Ikeja Computer Village

During a visit to Katangowa Market, along Lagos-Abeokuta expressway, we gathered that Katangowa is the proposed site where the Ikeja traders may be resettled.

In terms of size, Katangowa is bigger than the Computer Village, as the market covers about 26 hectares of land with most  of the traders dealing in second-hand clothes.

While the major entrance to the market from Lagos-Abeokuta expressway is almost  taken over by street traders, a large portion of the market has been overtaken  by refuse.
