In Februuary 2018, OLX shut down its Nigeria office but continued to run the Nigerian service from South Africa. Over a year later in April 2019, another classifieds marketplace, Jiji.ng signed an agreement to take over OLX operations in Nigeria.
Both companies have also reached an agreement for Jiji to acquire the other OLX businesses in Ghana, Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda, subject to regulatory approvals.
As such, users of the OLX website will be redirected to the Jiji website.
