Lagos State gives Ikoyi towers’ squatters 48-hour quit not

The Lagos State Government has issued a 48-hour quit notice to illegal occupants of abandoned Ikoyi Towers in Lagos Island.

He revealed this on his X account on Saturday.

According to the post, the state’s Commissioner for Environment and Water Resources Tokunbo Wahab gave the notice during an inspection of some sites, including the Federal Government-owned Ikoyi Towers.

“We were also on a site inspection to assess enforcement of Osborne underbridge after the illegal structures harbouring several persons were removed. 

“Abandoned Ikoyi Towers which we observed were housing illegal occupants posing a security threat to the environment and nuisance to the State. An undocumented number of persons running into hundreds were seen in the premises with no sanitary provisions, and whose daily activities could not be ascertained. They have been given a 48-hour vacation notice to leave the area.

“Stagnant water bodies were also observed in the canal in Ebutte Elefun – Adeniji Adele, Lagos Island. Illegal structures and other business activities such as block/cement moulding were found along the fence of Ebutte Elefun High School. We have given a directive for the removal of these infractions,” he wrote.
