Traders and shop owners at the Berger retail market are counting their losses, following the demolition of the facility by the Lagos State Government.

When Channels Television crew visited the site of the demolition exercise on Wednesday, the traders were seen salvaging their wares from the shops.

Some of the traders were seen wearing dejected looks, as their goods were scattered around the road, or being conveyed away in trucks.

While most of them refused to speak to our correspondent, those who spoke off camera wondered where next to go, saying they were entirely helpless.

The Lagos State Government had designated the market as illegal, and the land on which it stood had allegedly been sold to private owners. (Channels TV)
