The Enforcement Unit of the Lagos Central Business Districts Management office on Monday embarked on a cleanup and demolition of criminal hideouts around the outer Marina, Lagos.
The team, lead by the Head of Enforcement Unit, Mr Saheed Onipede also demolished shanties built under the pedestrian bridge close to the Leventis bus stop, Marina where the hoodlums hide before attacking unsuspecting motorists, especially at night.
According to a press release issued by Mr Olusegun Olaoye, Head of Public Affairs unit of the Agency, the enforcement operation is a continuous exercise in line with the vision of the present administration to rid the Lagos Island and the entire State of street urchins and criminals.
He said the Office will not relent in its efforts to ensure that the Lagos Island Business District is safe to transact business at all times and that the Office will ensure that enforcement is carried out periodically in order to clean up the entire business district as well as elevate its standard.
The Agency also used the opportunity to warn street traders erecting illegal structures on laybys, walkways and drainage alignments to remove them immediately to avoid being arrested and prosecuted for violating the Lagos State Environmental law.
