 Chairman Barr. Muhuyi Magaji Rimingado revealed this after sealing operations at Dawanau International Grains Market, Singer Market, and Kwari Textiles Market on February 11, 2024. 

Owners were absent during the operation, but the opened warehouses revealed a stockpile of spaghetti, rice, pasta, sugar, and other essentials. 

Notices have been issued for owners to appear before the commission to face legal charges. 

This crackdown follows a pledge by the commission to combat hoarding of essential goods, initiated last Thursday. 

Significant impact has already been observed in preventing rapid price hikes, such as rice surging from N52,000 to N61,000 within a week. 

The commission aims to stabilize prices by continuing these efforts, despite encountering claims that warehouses are designated as World Food Programme stores. 

The drastic doubling in maize prices from N30,000 to N60,000 further underscores the urgency of intervention. 

With warehouses containing hundreds of millions of Naira worth of hoarded goods, arrests will be made as part of the commission's intolerance towards such practices. 

Intelligence reports have been pivotal in identifying and addressing hoarding activities.
