Threats is not going to discourage us and demolition will go on – LASG

Despite threats and publicity from some quarters regarding its decision to demolish buildings blocking drainage channels, the Lagos State Government said it will not give in to threats.

The state government made this known on Thursday, November 30, through its Commissioner for Environment and Water Resources, Tokunbo Wahab.

According to Wahab, a seven-day violation notice was issued to the owner of a building that encroached into the seven-meter drainage setback on Orchid Road, Agungi, Agilan, Conservation Road, Osapa, and Oral Estate II along the Ikota River in Lekki District of the state.

According to the state government, the violation notice was issued in response to several stop-work notices issued to the owner of the structure, stressing that “enforcement action will be initiated” once the deadline has passed

Some complain that this demolition targets a specific ethnic group.

In response to this claim, Tokunbo Wahab wrote on his X-handle on Thursday: “We are not going to give in to any propaganda, blackmail, or threats. No one can profit from breaking the law. The law will be what it is.” The era of “anything goes” is completely over!” .
