A 5-day quit notice has been issued to different squatters under Ijora Causeway Bridge and Lagos Blue Rail Line overhead bridge in Ijora to remove their shanties for constituting danger to the Lagos Blue Line corridor or risk demolition and removal.

The quit notice was given by the Lagos State Commissioner for Environment and Water Resources, Tokunbo Wahab, on Sunday, Jan. 28, when he led a high powered team that included the Chairman, Special Intervention Squad on the restoration of the Lagos Badagry Rail Corridor Clean-Up, ACP Bayo Sulaiman, and Special Adviser on the Environment, Kunle Rotimi-Akodu, on an inspection of the Ijora and the under bridge.

Wahab, who lamented the security risk that the occupation of the underneath of the blue rail line bridge by mini buses, block moulders, fuel sellers and miscreants posed to the safe operation of the blue rail line service, said government would not allow this to continue.

The Commissioner stated that the state Task Force on Special Offences would take full possession of the whole expanse of land under the Ijora Causeway Bridge, and it would be sustained by the government.

He also gave a 24-hour quit notice to all those selling petroleum products under the Ijora Bridge to move all their trucks and containers, or risk confiscation, adding that they posed enormous dangers to the infrastructure and human presence in the area.

He reiterated that no form of enforcement must be carried against distributors and sellers of styrofoam products until the expiration of the three weeks moratorium granted them.
