The areas affected by the 5 day removal notice include; part of Agege Under Bridge, Isokoko Road setback, Shiaba Railway setback and Mangoro Road setback.

According to Agege Local Government Chairman, Hon. Ganiyu Egunjobi, the affected areas serve as escape routes for criminal elements who dispossess motorists and passersby of their belongings especially at night and at dawn.

He added that the presence of the dwellers have made it difficult for law enforcement agents to address the security challenges of the affected areas, adding that Government can’t keep repeating the same thing and expect a different result.

He noted that once the shanties are removed, relevant agencies of Government have been prepared to take possession of the areas to prevent the occupiers from returning to the cleared areas.

Agege Local Government had on Friday 15th March, 2024 had a meeting with the traders and dwellers of the affected areas as well as stakeholders, where it was agreed that dwellers and traders in the affected areas should vacate the areas after Ramadan.
