BREAKING: Soldiers withdraw as Banex Plaza reopens after week-long closure [VIDEO]

After a week of closure, Banex Plaza in Abuja has finally reopened its doors.  The plaza resumed operations precisely at 2:30 pm today, Monday, May 27th. 

The reopening comes following a period of enforced closure prompted by clashes between soldiers and traders.

Reports indicate that the plaza’s reopening was facilitated after traders involved in the earlier altercation with military personnel resolved with the authorities.

Earlier, the plaza witnessed a dramatic incident where personnel of the Nigerian Army Corps of Military Police stormed the premises, engaging in physical altercations with passersby and security guards. 

The action was in retaliation for a previous confrontation between four military police personnel and traders within the bustling electronics and telecommunications market.
