Illegal Structures: Ogun To Enforce Right Of Ways, Water Channels, Others

Ogun State Government has issued a warning to those encroaching on the Right of Ways, pipelines, setbacks of public utilities and infrastructure, along Lagos-Ibadan, Lagos-Abeokuta Expressways and such other roads, to immediately vacate such premises or risk government's sanctions.

A release signed by the Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Tpl Olatunji Odunlami, stated that, the step became imperative, in order to rid the State of flooding and improper structures that were inimical to a clean and aesthetic environment.

It added that operators of businesses such as; heavy duty equipment sellers, hiring and leasing, illegal bus trading points, illegal markets, block makers, mechanic workshops, car sellers, oil product dealers, containers, drums and kiosks erected along road sides and other unauthorized places should remove them forthwith, as the Ministry, in conjunction with other sister agencies would soon commence enforcement of the Right of Ways, without prior notice.  

The release further advised property owners who have leased out the frontage of their houses for commercial purposes, to desist forthwith, as culprits would have their Certificate of Occupancy, Building Permits withdrawn and such property sealed off.
