A popular shopping hub in the nation's capital, Banex Plaza, has now been reopened after it was closed for a week due to clashes between soldiers and traders.

According to PoliticsNigeria, the plaza resumed operations at 2:30 PM on Monday, May 27, marking the end of a tense period that had disrupted business activities.

The closure was initiated after an incident involving personnel from the Nigerian Army Corps of Military Police and traders at the plaza.

The confrontation escalated into physical altercations involving passersby and security guards, leading authorities to temporarily shut down the facility to ensure public safety and order.

According to reports, the reopening was agreed upon after successful resolutions between the traders involved in the altercations and military authorities.

This agreement comes as a relief to many business owners and customers who frequent the bustling electronics and telecommunications market.

The initial clash that prompted the closure occurred when four military police personnel retaliated against traders following a previous disagreement.

The reopening signifies a return to normalcy and the restoration of business activities at one of Abuja’s major commercial centers.
