Corruption in Ejigbo-Idimu Road construction
06 January 2015, 12:12
The second phase of Ejigbo-Idimu Road was awarded to the Metropolitan Construction Company Ltd by the Lagos government. Ever since the company started work in August it has been a good opportunity and avenue for the workers to extort money from the people in the area.
After demolishing people's houses and shops, the unscrupulous workers are demanding kick-backs from affected people before they put flaps on the entrance their residences.
Selective theory has been the order of the day. Give them money there would be flaps. Where no bribe is offered the workers will say no flaps are available.
They have thrown many people who are not ready to give them money in to untold pains and agonies.
We call on Lagos State Government to investigate this matter urgently. The first phase of the was awarded to Palgrom company and it wasn't like this.
