Illegal structures demolished in Lagos

Abuja - The Lagos State Task Force has commenced the demolition of all illegal structures and shanties erected on roads and walkways around markets in the state.

The Chairman of the Task Force, Olubukola Abe, stated that all such structures would be removed as they had forced pedestrians to use roads meant for motorists thereby endangering their lives.

"The state government will not fold its arms and condone these illegal acts being perpetuated by traders," he said.
