Illegal residents of National Stadium, Obalende Bridge, Apongbon Bridge, Ijora Bridge, and illegal motor parks have been handed a four-day ultimatum by the Lagos State Government.

The state commissioner for transportation, Sola Giwa, and the special adviser to the governor on environment, Olakunle Rotimi, issued a joint statement warning that all squatters, traders, shanties, and inhabitants under the Obalende bridge must leave the area by Thursday afternoon because enforcement would begin early Friday.

The government has finally had enough of the commercial vehicle operators trashing Obalende’s beauty, so they’ve issued a statement demanding that all of the drivers on the main highways leave their vehicles in the designated parks.

The statement states that they also checked the ongoing cleanup of Apongbon Under-Bridge, Ebute Ero, and other locations to make sure people are following the governor’s order to not live or trade under the bridge or in the surrounding regions in Lagos State.

According to the officials, the state government is determined to maintain a clean and safe environment. In a few months, the Lagos State Parks and Gardens Agency, LASPARK, will begin beautifying and landscaping the Obalende underbridge, Apongbon underbridge, and Ebute Ero underbridge, as well as cleaning up various areas across the state.

It was formerly planned at Ilubirin that the outflow of water would be directed along the Ilubirin path in order to regenerate Isale Eko as part of a strategic initiative of the Lagos State Government.

Additionally, the document mandated that the Lagos State Environmental Sanitation Corps promptly start apprehending and prosecuting those found crossing state highways.

It stated that “the Lagos State Environmental Sanitation Protection Law 2017,” which prohibits crossing highways, was in effect in 2017.
