As part of measures to ensure a cleaner Lagos during the Yuletide, the Special Committee on the Clean-Up of Lekki, Victoria Island and Ikoyi has served contravention notices on owners of illegal structures, disused buildings and automobile mechanics operating on the highways.

Chairman of the Committee and Secretary to the State Government, Mr. Tunji Bello, in a statement at the weekend, said the serving of the contravention notices was preparatory to the commencement of enforcement on the affected structures and items from Monday.

According to the SSG, daily enforcement exercise will be confined to the major streets and roads till the end of December, after which the Enforcement Team will move into the inner streets of the listed areas.

“The serving of contravention notices and subsequent enforcement followed several weeks of sensitisation campaigns carried out by the Task Force and the respective Residents Associations – Ikoyi, Leki and Victoria Island – to educate owners of illegal structures on the need to remove such items from the locality,” the statement said.

The Committee’s enforcement team would operate on Monday in Lekki along Babatunde Dabiri Street, Admiralty Road, Fola Osibo Street, Omorinre Johnson Street, Durosinmi-Etti Street, Hakeem Dickson Street and Ogbunike Street.

Also speaking on the forthcoming Enforcement exercise, Chairman of the Task Force on Special Offences, Superintendent Yinka Egbeyemi, sought the cooperation of all residents of Ikoyi, Lekki, and Victoria Island to ensure the success of the exercise.

Egbeyemi also charged residents of the areas to highlight any new observations or reports about environmental nuisances that may have gone unnoticed by the Task Force through their various Residents Associations for immediate action.

The renewed enforcement, which would be in phases, is in furtherance of the avowed commitment of the present administration to restore Ikoyi, Victoria Island and Lekki to its original master plan.

The other streets in Victoria Island scheduled to be reached by the Special Committee for mop-up include Ahmadu Bello Way, Adetokunbo Ademola Street, Bishop Aboyade Cole Street, Ozumba Mbadiwe Avenue, Idowu Taylor/Martins Street, Samuel Manuwa Street, Ajose Adeogun Street, Sanusi Fafunwa Street, Water Corporation Close, Adeyemo Alakija Street, Akin Adesola Street, Adeola Odeku Street, Saka Tinubu Street, Kofo Abayomi Street and Ligali Ayorinde Avenue.

In Ikoyi, the enforcement team will clean up Awolowo Road,Keffi Street, Falomo Roundabout, Kingsway Road, Norman Williams, Raymond Njoku Road, Oyinkan Abayomi Bourdillon Road, Cameron Road, Onikoyi Crescent, Glover Road and Osborne Road.

Others are Federal Secretariat Road, First and Second Avenue, Lugard Avenue, Alexander Avenue, Bank Road and Club Road.
