In a chat with NAN, the Director, Department of Development Control, Mr Mukhtar Galadima, said the market was becoming a threat to the residents of the area and passerby.
Daily trust reports that He said the area was turned into a haven for criminal activities despite relentless efforts by the FCT Administration to sanitise the area.
