The Lagos State Government on Sunday issued a four-day relocation notice to all squatters occupying illegal shanties around the Lagos Coastal Road in Mayegun, in the Lekki area of the state.

Speaking with newsmen after an inspection tour to Jakande, Elegushi Itedo, System 156 and 44 on Orchid Road, the state Commissioner for the Environment and Water Resources, Tokunbo Wahab, said all such shanties and squatters, close to regional road alignment must vacate the area by Thursday afternoon as enforcement would commence in the early hours of Friday.

A statement on Sunday quoted the commissioner as saying that the tour was important in order to ensure that the coastal alignment of the aforementioned areas were secured and illegal settlements along the corridors were removed.

Wahab stressed that by next week the spots will be cleared with the Lagos State Building Control Agency involved in the proper regeneration of the area.
