LAGOS, Nigeria – The Lagos State Government has taken a decisive step against illegal construction, targeting structures built on drainage alignments in the upscale areas of Parkview Estate and Banana Island.

This move, led by the Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources, aims to facilitate access to key drainage systems for essential cleaning and maintenance.

Tokunbo Wahab, the Commissioner for the Environment and Water Resources, announced the development on his social media handle on Wednesday, December 20, 2023.

He emphasised that this action was necessary following the expiration of a contravention notice previously issued to properties built on the setbacks of the Mojisola Onikoyi Shoreline Estate, Parkview Estate, and the Banana Island collector drain in Ikoyi.

The enforcement team of the Ministry commenced the removal of these illegal structures on Tuesday.

The operation is part of a broader initiative to ensure the free flow of water through the state’s drainage systems, which is crucial for preventing flooding and maintaining environmental health.

Commissioner Wahab stated: “Following the expiration of the contravention notice served on properties built on setbacks of Mojisola Onikoyi Shoreline Estate – Parkview Estate – Banana Island collector drain in Ikoyi, the Enforcement team of the Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources yesterday commenced the removal of these illegal structures to allow access to the collector drain for cleaning and maintenance.”
