The Lagos State Environmental and Special Offences Unit, otherwise called Taskforce, has issued a three-day removal notice to all illegal structures owners at Maroko and Lekki Coastal Road in the state.

This was made known in a statement by the Government on Monday, stating that the Taskforce Chairman, Shola Jejeloye, issued the notice when his team paid a visit to the area on Monday.

In accordance with the statement, such notice became essential because of the road construction along the coastal road.

The road, which serves as an alternative for the Lekki-Epe Expressway, is being cluttered with illegal structures, abandoned vehicles and containers, thus the urgent notice.

The statement quoted Jejeloye as saying, “The stretch of the road has been taken over by mechanics, block makers, bamboo and wood sellers, shanties and other illegal occupiers, which will impede effective road construction work in the area.”

He said on the expiration of the notice on Thursday, personnel of the agency would remove all structures, shanties, abandoned vehicles and materials in the area, stating that the removal of all load and criminal hideouts in Marwa Waterside area would also assist to reduce traffic thefts and criminal activities on Lekki/Ajah way, especially at Jakande Roundabout.

The statement read in part, “The Chairman, therefore, implored the owners and occupiers to heed the State Government’s Removal Order as anyone found on the road at the expiration of the notice would be made to face justice.”
