BREAKING: Military finally reopens Banex Plaza in Abuja

After more than a week of being under siege by the Nigerian military, the Banex Plaza in the Wuse 2 area of Abuja has finally reopened for business.

The plaza resumed operations on Monday around 2:30pm, as reported by Daily Trust.

The military had sealed off the market on May 18 following a violent clash between traders and soldiers.

The conflict arose when thugs reportedly attacked soldiers who were involved in a dispute with a trader over a faulty phone sale.

The police tried to intervene, but the soldiers later stormed the plaza, prompting traders to close down their businesses.

Various human rights activists, including Femi Falana, SAN, and civil society organizations, criticized the military’s actions in condemning the incident.
