The shutdown of business by phone dealers in Ikeja Computer Village enters its second day today to protest alleged harassment by the Standard Organisation of Nigeria (SON), which conducted anti-counterfeiting raids on the technology market cluster last Saturday.

The phone dealers, who are angered by what they cite as alleged “harassments and intimidation” during the raid by a combined team of policemen and SON officials, decided to close shop for three days in what they cite as “peaceful protest” against the actions of the law enforcement agency.

Barring any last minute change of mind, the Phone and Allied Products Dealers Association of Nigeria (PAPDAN), the umbrella body of phone dealers in the market said it is considering a legal action after the three-day business shutdown.

Iyke Nwosu, President of CAPDAN, told Technology Times on Monday that, “we are going to court, after this three-day peaceful protest.”
