Lagos Government Resume Demolition, Moves To Ikoyi Structures On Drainages Today 

Today (Monday), the Lagos State Government will resume demolition of perimeter fences located two meters from drainage channels on the Norman Williams, Awolowo, and Ribadu roads in the state’s Ikoyi area.
Recall that the Lagos government started tearing down buildings that impede drainage setbacks in some areas of the state as part of its efforts to get back on track with the state’s master plan.
It was discovered that the state authorities demolished a few illegal structures in Lekki Phase II and the surrounding area last week.
The Lagos government state’s Ministry of Environment and Water Resources said in a statement on Sunday that the demolition process is still ongoing and that the demolishing train would be moving to the Ikoyi area of the state starting today.
The ministry said the exercise comes after the expiration of the grace period given to the property owners in the affected areas.
The Commissioner for Environment and Water Resources, Tokunbo Wahab, according to the statement, was at Norman Williams Street on Sunday to check for the compliance level in the area.
“It is discouraging to see that just a few homeowners have complied while a larger percentage have not made any move regarding the matter,” Wahab was quoted to have said during the visit.
The Special Adviser to the Governor on Environment, Mr Olakunle Rotimi-Akodu, condemned the recalcitrant attitude of the homeowners.
