Lagos state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has issued a one-week evacuation notice to traders who have illegally illegally constructed shops and market stalls on the drainages and unauthorized stores in different parts of Lagos Island.
The governor during an inspection tour of the flooded areas of Ojo Giwa, Princess, Oroyiyin, Idumagbo and Pelewura areas said the order is in line with his administration’s plan for the regeneration of the whole axis.
Sanwo-Olu also instructed the Ministry of Environment to serve the requisite notices and begin demolition of the illegal structures immediately.
He gave a one-week notice to Bombata market traders while assuring Lagosians that the regeneration of the Lagos Island axis has started already.
