Flooding: Govt gives owners 48 hours to remove shanties

The Lagos State Government says it has served fresh 48 hours’ abatement notice on owners of illegal structures and shanties in the Obalende area of the state to remove them.
The occupants were also asked to vacate the structures said to be blocking drainage channels and obstructing free flow of water, which resulted in flooding when it rained in the area.

The Chairman, Lagos State Task Force on Environmental and Special Offences (Enforcement) Unit, SP Olayinka Egbeyemi, stated on Tuesday that the notice would elapse on Thursday, July 27, a statement said.

He disclosed that the initial six-month notice from the government expired recently, but the law permitted the new 48 hours abatement notice to be served before demolition.

Egbeyemi said, “The flooding experienced in some parts of the state is not natural, but a man-made disaster due to carelessness of members of the public who dump refuse and used tyres into both primary and secondary water channels.

“We implore owners of illegal structures, shanties and containerised shops around Obalende, including under bridges, to remove them within 48 hours of this notice or have them demolished by the government.”

The chairman sought a total compliance and maximum cooperation from the people, urging miscreants around the area to relocate outside the state or be arrested and charged to court.
