Lagos to Demolish Shanties on Island after Sallah

- Advertisment -

The Special Committee on Clean- Up of Ikoyi, Lekki, and Victoria Island inaugurated by the State Governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode last week has concluded plans to commence the enforcement of the Environmental Sanitation and Town Planning laws in the affected areas after the Sallah holidays.

The Secretary to the State Government (SSG) and Chairman of the Committee, Mr Tunji Bello who disclosed this in an interview with newsmen on Wednesday, said this follows the expiration of the 14-day ultimatum issued to all owners of illegal structures, owners of abandoned buildings now harbouring prostitutes, shanties, street hawkers and those who have converted walkways into trading points and food courts in the affected areas.
Bello said the Committee decided to first embark on sensitization campaign to give the owners of such illegal structures enough notices to willingly pull down such structures themselves before the government pulls them down and also prosecute owners of such structures.
He informed that every modality has been put in place to ensure that the original master plan of Ikoyi, Lekki, and Victoria Island as envisioned by the founding fathers is maintained.
