Lagos Begins Cleanup Of Illegal Motor Parks Under Bridges
Motorists engaging in illegal commercial activities under the Ojuelegba and Ikeja Bridges in Lagos may be in for some tough time on Monday, September 11, 2017.
Operatives of the Lagos State Task Force say they will commence full operations against illegality.
There has been a 48-hour quit notice served on the affected people by the agency and this has expired, according to the task force chairman, SP Olayinka Egbeyemi.
“All these illegal motorists engaging in commercial activities around Ojuelegba and Ikeja by Ipodo Market, Awolowo Way have been served a ‘Quit Notice’ on Saturday, Sept. 9, 2017 to vacate under the bridges immediately.
“Activities of these illegal motor parks are contributing to the traffic gridlock across the state.
“No responsible and responsive government will tolerate criminal activities being carried out by hoodlums and miscreants around these illegal parks,” Egbeyemi said in a statement signed by Mr Adebayo Taofeek, Head, Public Affairs Unit.
Egbeyemi said that the operation is to clean up the dark spots, advising motorists engaging in these illegal commercial activities to comply with the directive.
He warned that anybody caught obstructing the operations would be severely dealt with in accordance with the law.
