The Lagos state government has sealed up Ogba City Mall, Ikeja, and Ajah Market, Etti-Osa, for sundry waste disposal offences.
The Lagos State Waste Management Authority, LAWMA’s director of public affairs, Folashade Kadiri said the action was carried out by the combined enforcement teams of LAWMA; Lagos State Task Force on Environmental Sanitation and Special Offences, LASTMA and LAGSEC (KAI).”
Kadiri revealed that the enforcement team also cleared shanties and illegal traders’ structures around the Ajah BRT corridor, and Ajah Jubilee Bridge.
In the wake of the development, the state environment and water resources commissioner, Tokunbo Wahab said the move is in line with government’s resolve to continue its onslaught on filth and indiscriminate waste disposal by markets and businesses.
