Taskforce set to remove illegal structures in Lekki

Meanwhile, the State Environmental and Special Offences (Enforcement) Unit has demolished over two thousand five hundred illegal structures at Marwa Waterside, Lekki.

The Chairman of the unit, CSP Olayinka Egbeyemi, who disclosed this in a statement, said the exercise was in preparation for the construction of a coastal road which would serve as an alternative route for the Lekki-Epe Expressway.

He added that the demolition exercise would also enhance the flow of traffic on that corridor.

According to the chairman, an additional eight-day grace was given to the illegal business owners to vacate the area after the expiration of the first removal order.

He insisted that the Taskforce would continue to embark on the clean-up exercise as well as a clampdown on all criminal elements disturbing law-abiding residents within Marwa waterside and the entire Lekki axis.
