As part of the ongoing demolition of illegal structures, the Lagos State government has uncovered another set of apartments under a bridge located in the highbrow area of Ikoyi, Lagos State.

Recall that earlier on Tuesday, Commissioner for Environment and Water Resources, Tokunbo Wahab, had in a tweet on his official X handle page, announced the discovery of an apartment under the Dolphin Estate Bridge in Ikoyi where tenants paid N250,000 annual rent.

In a latest tweet on his X handle page on Friday, Wahab announced that the illegal settlement was discovered under Osborne Bridge, Ikoyi.

According to him, “Another illegal settlement was discovered under the Osborne Bridge, Ikoyi. Lagos State Environmental Sanitation Corps @LAGESCOfficial (KAI) commenced an immediate clearance operation,” the commissioner wrote on X.

The state government had earlier dislodged under bridge tenants who paid N250k annually to yet to be identified landlords.

The tenants who were dislodged in the process were discovered during an enforcement exercise by officials of the state government during demolition of illegal structures

He added that the enforcement team of Lagos State’s Ministry of Environment and Water Resources had successfully removed all structures, including a container utilised for various illegal activities, from beneath the Dolphin Estate Bridge.
