Lagos to Remove 100 Shanties.


The Lagos state government has announced plans to remove over 100 shanties housing several people at Adeniji Adele under bridge from Monday.

This was announced by the state commissioner for the environment and water resources, Tokunbo Wahab, in a briefing with journalists on Sunday.

He said the removal comes after the expiration of a 48-hour removal notice served on all occupants of the shanties to move out their belongings.

The commissioner said operatives of the kick against indiscipline and officials from the ministry’s monitoring enforcement and compliance department will be given security backup to conduct the operation.

Wahab emphasized that the exercise is part of Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu administration’s commitment to reclaim all ungoverned spaces that dot the Lagos landscape.
