Lagos Govt Demolishes Over 100 Shanties at Adeniji Adele

Date:

Lagos State Government has said it would undertake enforcement action to remove over 100 shanties at Adeniji Adele underbridge from tomorrow, Monday, 6th of May, 2024.

The removal is coming after the expiration of a 48-hour removal notice served on all occupants of the shanties to move with their belongings.

This was disclosed by the State Commissioner for the Environment and Water Resources, Mr Tokunbo Wahab, in an interview with newsmen on Sunday.

He said operatives of the Kick Against Indiscipline (KAI/LAGESC) and officials from the Monitoring Enforcement and Compliance (MEC) department of the ministry will be given security backup to conduct the operation.

This exercise, according to him, is part of the avowed commitment of the present administration under Mr @jidesanwoolu to reclaim all ungoverned spaces that dot the Lagos landscape.

“Unsightly shanties which are located in the heart of Lagos Island represent a distorted image of what a smart city like Lagos should be.

“Apart from the unsanitary conditions of residents in the shanties, it also serves as a hiding place for criminals and points for peddling hard drugs and substances which is injurious to the wellbeing of law-abiding residents.

“Therefore, I advise all the occupants of the shanties in their interest, to voluntarily move out with their belongings before the commencement of the enforcement operations on Monday,” he added.

The Lagos State Government will undertake enforcement action to remove over 100 shanties at Adeniji Adele underbridge from tomorrow, Monday, 6th of May, 2024.
