LASG clears properties from Odo Iyalaro to Ogudu along System 1 drainage channel

The Lagos State Government, on Monday, initiated the removal of properties illegally constructed along the System 1 drainage channel, spanning Odo Iyalaro to Ogudu, to allow for the free flow of rainwater in the area.

Tokunbo Wahab, the  Lagos  State Commissioner for Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources,  made this known  on  Monday  via post on his  official X (formerly Twitter) account.

According to Wahab’s post on X, the Lagos State Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources’ Monitoring Enforcement and Compliance Department carried out the removal of the properties.

The removal action was taken after the property owners ignored multiple notices from the Lagos State Government since December 2023 to cease construction on the drainage channel and remove existing structures.
