This is so sad!!As Each day arrives, more people are stripped off their sources of income... Life is getting tougher by the day but with God, I'm superfluous.
LAW IS LAW,but sometimes common sense and human empathy should have prevailed.Apparently common sense is not always common as exhibited by lagos state govt and officials.SAD CASE.(by the way,am yet to fully wake up from the fainting spell of yesterday chronicles?or IHN story lol!)
This is not a country but a zoo.Violence, violence violence.Nothing like dialogueNothing like sympathy.The rich oppress the poor with out giving a thing.Who pulls down a building with people's property inside ? God help us , save us please.
Ds is bad o i hope they compensate dem.this landlord is very wicked...after givin notice of demolition he stil went ahead to rent out d shops n nw hes no where to be found.God help ur children.
So sad. Disgustingly corrupt nation indeed.
This is bad. Why not just let them pack their stuffs out of the building?All these officials like overdoing what they are sent to do. Same thing they did in our plaza. Locking it up without any notice. In this hard times.
They did not inform the business owners bcos they are igbos. They will not do this to the hausa people . They know hausa people will start killing them again as they did before
Sick country !! Sicker ppl. I hate black ppl . I hate Nigerians .Evil lot. When they say pay ur tithe they refuse . See what happened to ur money .
In this hard times?????? Ambode clap for yourself for making more people suffer. Longest hiss!!
No, is wrong and d landlord is a bad man for not letting d tenants know about it.
They are blaming the government instead of blaming the landlord who was given notice since March
Sorry for your loss
I know that Ambode would have destroyed nothing if it owned by his yoruba brothers. Height of wickedness
Man's inhumanity to man
Stella your the best investigative blogger out there!!!Please dig into this "land Lord", find out who be or she is, because my guts tell me it's not a Yoruba person. Almost certain it's owned by someone from South East!!!. Please Stella, really do background work on the landlord!/Thank you.
Really sad especially in this tough economy. Government should show empathy
Exactly, so giving them a few hours to pack out would have killed them??? Some people are just heartless, forget law, can't we ever have conscience?
You write well for such a dumb and myopic statement!
Wicked world. The best for Nigeria is to break up. Nothing like one Nigeria. This country is like 100 people in a room without ventilation and u know what's happens when 10 to 20 people are in one room without ventilation, the end result is suffocation. Nigeria is like a hell on earth. People re suffering. Innocent children are dieing because of hunger. God where re u. If this is the reason why u created and allowed innocent people especially children to come into this world and suffer then I will say u Re truly not a generous God. What has those children in the idp camp done to you. For crying out loud.those kids are innocent .why are they suffering like that. Those pics of children in the idp camp whenever it pops up on my fb timeline..it breaks my heart. Those children are innocent. Why are they suffering like that. Why do u let those children suffer while the people in Politics killing this country are all still alive and hearty. Why can't u take their lives so that people with senses can take over. Does it mean the juju they use in protecting themselves is better than ur Power. This is not fair. Sometimes I doubt ur existence. Sometimes I feel this Christianity is a white mans way of enslaving africans . I seriously believe that Nigeria would have been more developed than this if there is nothing like religion. People no longer think with their senses rather believes in what their GO , pastor or imam says. Now innocent people re suffering, why can't those pastors and the rest who thinks the sees heaven and earth pray Nigeria out from this recession and hunger. It really breaks my heart when I see innocent children suffering, looking like a roasted meat where as they are still alive and breathing.This is not fair at allI am tired of ranting bikoI am pissed.
And you have to go anonymous just to write this? Cowardice is indeed genetic!
There is no tribe dat is above the law, let us stop being tribalistic
Plss let us stop blaming ambode, he is not at fault . There was a meeting with the landlord n he was told to tell his tenants d situation of things but he refused. Sum Nigerians r so greed n only after their own selfish end
What's this one even saying? So the business owners in the mall didn't pay their tithes, that's y d mall was demolished? Am not understanding....
Lets not be stupid... the landlord is the criminal here not the government..
Ambode no try at all-at all.
Stupid landlords that wont tell their tenants whats up. They should go and meet the landlord and ask why.Just 10 minutes to pack out. Imaging the amount of money they have paid to the landlord only to receive this.Thieves landlord and na yoruba man be that.
And what if she has no blog ID Madam Nzube Izuu.
The govt is to blame. They should have gone there months before and placed notice on the walls and even gone there a week before to personally let them know the place would be destroyed. They should call on the lawmakers
Isn't it senselessness and wicked of the govt. How about confiscating the property since it's the owner that's defaulting not the sme owners. What benefit has the demolition brought to the state? It only increased the number of unemployed and potential criminals in the state.
The only sensible comment here.
James you are d same person as James Ade. Dem swear for you. Na imm make your sense be like rotten infested wood. No sense.
Unless you have never run a business in Nigeria especially Lagos, you will not understand how difficult it is to do business. You will have to first pay through your nose for permit, provide your own electricity, water, internet etc. and still pay ridiculously high tax to the Govt. SMEs suffer the most while few big companies with connections have the opportunity to go and sit down with them and negotiate a payment plan for their high outstanding tax debt. The weak Naira has already made it impossible for unemployed youths who were buying items from Chinese websites and selling on deal day et al to continue while Govt. is busy demolishing the private sectors effort. This wasn't the only building destroyed in VI/Ikoyi axis. I am all for obeying law and order and the landlord should have followed due process to get the right permits but demolishing the building seems very extreme. They could have sealed it instead at least the tenants will know what is happening and pressure the landlord to either pay for the permit or refund their rent.
Ask me,how can you blame Ambode? When d landlord had been told since. I am sure the man was trying to pull stunts dts why he still leased out d shops even with the warning. I remember when Elrufai was trying organise Abuja Wetin dem no talk. They swore for him tire and said he was d devil's incarnate. If not Elrufai Abuja wld have been a complete replica of Lagos. Pls blame d landlord and not government. The only thing is they shld have allowed dem some extra time to pack out their things. But Ambode didn't d anything wrong.
Effect of CHANGE
Yes we will blame the government, they are supposed to paste the whatever notice on the mall wall in a conspicuous place. That is best practice not having a meeting with the landlord or giving him the notice by hand. There is a process to be followed in demolition. If you notice, no body is against the demolition but how it was carried out. Why not allow them move out their things. What can you achieve in ten minutes? Anonymous 11:32, hope you now understand.
This is very unfortunate
Truly,most of you here have just shown your utter ignorance. Sorry to say and as much as I sympathise with those affected,there's nothing wrong with what the Lagos state govt did. Did you all not see that a notice was given to the landlord since May? Come on......remove sympathy. They should go and hold the landlord and take what necessary legal action against him. Although that won't bring back what they've lost(or it might) the state has an obligation to maintain its structures which include roads and the environment. The landlord was just heartless for not informing them not the govt that informed the landlord. Please be objective. Maybe it can help move our country forward. Thank you.
The landlord should be blamed abeg. If they've served him a notice of demolition, his duty is to inform his tenants.
