The AFR-ICT and Banking indices led the laggards, down 6.9% and 0.9% respectively due to sell pressure on AIRTELAF (-10.0%), MTNN (-1.2%), and UBN (-8.9%). Likewise, losses in WAPCO (-4.1%), AIICO (-1.8%), and SOVRENIN (-7.4%) dragged the Industrial Goods and Insurance indices lower by 0.3% apiece.
