LASG to remove over 100 shanties at Adeniji Adele Under bridge on Monday after 48-hour notice lapse

The Lagos State Commissioner for Environment and Water Resources, Tokunbo Wahab, has said that the state government  will commence enforcement actions to dismantle more than 100 shanties located at the Adeniji Adele under bridge with effect from Monday, May 6, 2024.

Wahab made this disclosure in a statement on an X’s post on Sunday, May 5, 2024.

The commissioner said this action follows the expiration of a 48-hour notice served to all occupants of the shanties, instructing them to vacate the area with their belongings.

Furthermore, he said security backup will be provided to operatives of the Kick Against Indiscipline (KAI/LAGESC) and officials from the Monitoring Enforcement and Compliance (MEC) department of the ministry to carry out the operation.

In addition, the commissioner stated that the shanties not only create unsanitary living conditions for the residents, but they also act as a refuge for criminals.

He said these areas serve as hubs for trafficking hard drugs and substances, posing a threat to the well-being of law-abiding citizens.
