Lagos Drive To Clean Up Illegal Shanties Under Adeniji Adele Bridge

The Lagos State Government has announced plans to remove over 100 shanties under Adeniji Adele Bridge, citing unsightly conditions and criminal activity.

The operation, set to begin on Monday, follows a 48-hour notice given to occupants to vacate the premises. Similar actions have already occurred in other parts of Lagos, including Ijora, Apongbon, Obalende, and Dolphin.

Commissioner Tokunbo Wahab emphasized the government’s commitment to reclaiming ungoverned spaces, stating that the shanties present a distorted image of Lagos.

He also addressed concerns regarding property removal in Mende, Maryland, asserting that proper notices were given to property owners to prevent flooding.

Wahab’s statements were made during a briefing, highlighting ongoing efforts by the Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu administration to improve the city’s landscape and security.
