Lagos Govt Demolishes Houses in Otodo Gbame

Houses in Otodo Gbame, a waterfront community in the Lekki area of Lagos state, are currently being demolished by the government, despite a subsisting court injunction stopping the forceful eviction of residents.

The team carrying out the demolition is being assisted by armed security personnel.

The development took residents by surprise as a court had earlier restrained the government from carrying out the act.

One of the affected residents accused the government of being unfair to the poor.
