Jankara, Bombata, Others Joins List Of Lagos Markets To Be Demolished

In order to facilitate urban rehabilitation, Lagos Island markets like Jankara, Bombata, and Pelewura will be destroyed, according to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Sunday.
This was made known by Sanwo-Olu when he inspected several drainage channels in the state’s Island region.
Sanwo-Olu said: “We have come here on a drainage and regeneration call. The entire stretch of Idumagbo Avenue is always flooded during the rainy season because of human activities, especially from the markets around the area.
“They have built on the canals and prevented the free flow of water, so we need to do a total rebuild.
“Hence, to allow for proper regeneration of the Lagos Island, Jankara and Bombata markets have to go, it will be ground zero. This thus serves as a notice, that the markets will be cleaned to allow our urban regeneration plans. The design for the new market is ready.
“We will, however, give adequate notice to those in Pelewura market because it has more traders, but this serves as the first notice.
“These markets have outgrown and outlived a market in a modern city, so they must give way for urban models.”
