The Palm Mall is an edifice that house Shoprite and other shops that deals in clothings, household items, telecoms, banks and eatery, among others.
The report says that fun seekers always patronise the Mall during festive periods.
As a result of government directive to curb further spread of coronavirus pandemic in the state, the management of the edifice is forced to either shutdown or close early due to the surging crowd.
NAN gathered that many of the children who had gained access to the vicinity of the mall were denied access into the shop while others were stopped at the gate from gaining entrance.
However, those who gained entrance queued with the hope that if they were orderly, the management may admit them into the shop.
A security operative at the mall, who pleaded anonymity, told NAN that the children would not be allowed to shop because many of them were not wearing masks.
The security also said that the children disregarded the social/physical distancing order of the government and experts advice.
NAN, however, observed that some children in company of their parents were allowed into the Mall, but not many of them could go in at the same time.
The fun seekers besieged the mall as Muslims across the globe are celebrating Eid-el-Fitr to mark the end of a 30-day fasting from dawn to dusk.
