CSP Jejeloye while appealing to traders, mechanics, and other squatters living under the bridge in clusters noted that Government would enforce the 3-day removal notice on Thursday, 13 May 2021.

He disclosed that the ‘Removal Notice’ became necessary in view of the rising incidences of traffic robberies around the area. Meanwhile, the removal is inevitable due to environmental nuisance caused by the squatters in the area.

The Chairman noted that Government is worried by the squalid environment. This is serving as hideouts for criminals, who daily dispossess road users of their valuables every now and then, adding that the present nature of the environment allow criminals to escape police arrest.

He warned the owners of abandoned trucks and vehicles, shanties, containers, kiosks to remove them from the area before the expiration of the deadline, adding that this won’t be the first Notice of Removal being served on the occupiers.

“Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s newly signed ‘Executive Order’ on traffic and sanitation declared zero tolerance for environmental abuse, illegal and indiscriminate dumping of refuse and defacing the environment.





I can assure you that Government would enforce this notice come this Thursday”.
