Lagos officials arrest fake town planner

10 May 2016, 19:56

Lagos - A middle aged man was arrested in Lagos, on Monday for allegedly serving fake demolition notices and stop-work orders on buildings under construction in exchange for incentives reported Punch.

Adebayo said he was employed as a project staff by the Lagos State Ministry of the Environment about eight years ago, but was laid off. Adebayo is now accusing the Ministry of wrongful dismissal. 
“I was relieved of my job about four years ago. They just laid us off without any benefit and they did not collect their identity cards from us.

“The only thing I have to say is that when someone works for government, they should at least recognise the efforts of such person. You cannot just lay off people like that without anything. We all know the situation of the country. I know I don’t have the authority to do what I have been doing, but I have to survive.”

According to Naij, Workers on sight of a building alerted officials of the ministry after Adebayo served a demolition notice.
Adeshina Odunuga, the spokesperson of the Lagos state Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development said the suspect was caught while he was impersonating as an officer of the ministry.
