Lagos Dislodges Street Traders And Clears Shanties

Officials of the Lagos State Environmental Sanitation Corps and the state's Task Force on Environmental and Special Offences have dislodged street traders operating on drainage setbacks and razed down shanties in different areas of the state.

The spokesperson for the state's Ministry of Environment and Water Resources, Kunle Adeshina, dislcosed this in photos shared on his X handle on Thursday.

Adeshina wrote, "Acting on directives of HC MOE&WR, Tokunbo Wahab, operatives of LAGESC/KAI recently dislodged illegal street traders displaying wares on walkway and drainage setbacks at Toyin street lkeja and Medical Junction along Airport Way, Ikeja in contravention of state sanitation laws."

In a separate post, Adeshina wrote, "Acting on the directives of HC MOE&WR, Tokunbo Wahab, operatives of the Lagos Task Force on Environmental and Special Offences, Thursday cleared shanties at the Toll gate area of Victoria Island."



  1. They8bern demolishing shanties in ikota too

  2. What other option do they have to survive bikonu

    1. The people who have or rent properties and those who scrapped around to raise monies to get shops also have to survive. The same people saying they have to survive are always happy to endanger the lives and livelihood of others in areas ravaged by flooding, overcrowding and crime.

      If flooding is not addressed and prevented, it is the same chronic complainers that will lay on the officials in Lagos who have to deal with the issues your own state's government has refused to address.

  3. Keep Lagos clean. Eko oni gbaje oooo

  4. I hope all these efforts won't be in vain o.
    We should see a difference during the next raining season

  5. Nice one, but why this year??? This is just wrong timing hunger plenty now.

    Na waooo
    See people market
    Did they give them Notice..

    1. Did those people not notice that they were selling illegally? Did they give the government notice of their intention to break the rules or to obstruct drainage infrastructure? Did they not hear of their colleagues being chased away from other markets everyday?
