The commissioner, Tokunbo Wahab, made the discovery public via a social media post. He said the 86 partitioned rooms, sized “10×10 and 12×10”.

He added that the enforcement team of the ministry had successfully removed all structures, including a container utilised for various illegal activities, from beneath the dolphin estate bridge.

According to Rotimi-Akodu, 23 individuals were arrested during the eviction, which was carried out by officials of the Lagos state environmental sanitation corps, popularly known as KAI on Tuesday.
