LASG to enforce three-meter drainage Right of Way in Apapa from March 11

The Lagos State Government has announced the commencement of enforcement activities on Monday, March 11, 2024, in Apapa, to reinstate the three-metre Right of Way for drainage channels.  

Mr. Tokunbo Wahab, the Commissioner for Environment and Water Resources, made this announcement after a site inspection that assessed compliance with previous notices to defaulting property owners to adjust fences encroaching on the drainage Right of Way. 

This is according to a statement on the state government’s website. 

The Commissioner stressed that the Lagos State Government is committed to addressing the persistent flooding issues in Apapa.  

To this end, he directed enforcement officers to ensure the removal of all properties violating the drainage right of way, adhering to the legal requirement of a three-meter clearance.  

Wahab assured that the enforcement process would be impartial, with no properties being exempted.
