The Lagos State Special Committee on Clean Up of Ikoyi and Victoria Island has directed all boat owners in the boat yard on Oyinkan Abayomi Drive, Ikoyi (at the junction of Iru Close) to remove them immediately.

A statement issued on Monday by the Chairman of the Committee, Mr. Tunji Bello, warned the owners of boats and vehicle parked within the yard to remove them within 21 days from today or face the full wrath of the law.

He said the order, which is part of the clean-up mandate of the committee, becomes necessary following complaints and representations from members of the public and residents of the area on the unwholesome activities going on in the location.

Bello added that investigation revealed that the boat yard has become a den of miscreants, drug dealers, prostitutes, gangs and petty traders, attracting patrons who also engage in all forms of illegal parking on the road.

He stated that some of the residents of the area have also complained that while women sell local gin (ogogoro) at the stalls during the day, miscreants hide inside the boat yard at night and harass car owners and joggers at will.

The Chairman reiterated the commitment of the committee to carry out its responsibility of ensuring that all environmental nuisances that may endanger the lives of residents are removed in a steady and systematic manner.
