Lagos uproots residents in order to demolish Ijegun shantytowns.

Lagos uproots residents in order to demolish Ijegun shantytowns.
On Monday, the Lagos state government took action to remove illegal occupants in Ijegun and announced plans for the demolition of shanties in the area. 

Tokunbo Wahab, the Lagos Commissioner for the Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources, stated that this initiative is part of the government's ongoing efforts to sanitize school environments throughout the state. 

The operation targeted street traders and illegal shanties near Ategbo Nursery and Primary School in Ijegun and Local Government Primary School at Pako bus stop, Abaranje road, Ikotun. 

Wahab explained that the enforcement was prompted by clear breaches of the 2017 Lagos State Environmental Management Planning law, specifically regarding illegal structures along the perimeter fence and drainage alignment. 

The operation follows the expiration of statutory notices served on the violators. Wahab emphasized the necessity of addressing the observed trend of illegal structures in school environments in Lagos. 

Last Thursday, a similar operation evacuated illegal kiosks near Silver Springs Schools, Abaranje Road, Ikotun. 

The monitoring officers were directed to have the school principal take over the setback and beautify it in line with the Greener Lagos policy of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu's administration.
