Lagos Government Clears Illegal Structures In Agege



The Lagos State Environmental and Special Offences (Enforcement) Unit (Taskforce) has demolished over 150 illegal shanties, kiosks and shop extensions at the Arewa Community Central Mosque, popularly called (Masalashi Alhaja), in the Agege area of Lagos.The agency’s Head of Public Affairs Unit, Mr Adebayo Taofiq, in a statement on Thursday, said that the demolition was carried out on Wednesday.According to Taofiq, the Chairman of the Agency, CSP Olayinka Egbeyemi, said that the demolition became imperative following the degradation of the environment by miscreants and illegal traders in the area.“Relevant stakeholders, including Alhaji Musa Muhammad Dogon Kadai, the Sarki of Agege, were notified before the demolition of the illegal shanties and kiosks took place.“The Mosque has been sealed for over four months due to an attack on officials of the Lagos State COVID-19 Task Force by some worshippers, while enforcing the lockdown directives.“The area has since become a security threat to residents and members of the public because the surroundings of the mosque have been occupied by miscreants and illegal traders,” he said.
