About 100 shops and other structures within Jakande Estate, Amuwo-Odofin, have been razed and hundreds of traders displaced when a demolition squad from the Lagos State Government stormed the estate, to restore sanity alleged sanity to the complex.

The demolition came three months after the State Government, which the Secretary of the Jakande Landlord Association, Mr. Toba Johnson, disclosed demolished 12,000 shops with About 20,000 traders displaced.

Sources said that the state government commenced the demolition exercise February 1st; over one week after the warning issued to the occupants of the structures had expired.

Vanguard gathered that the State Government through the ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development issued a 7-day ultimatum on January 19, 2017, to owners of structures erected on drainages and walkways within the estate to remove them.

The government argued that the structures were distorting the Estate Master Plan, and, should be removed to restore the original master plan of the estate drawn over 20 years ago.

Of the structures demolished by the government were shops and other structures used by residents for business activities along the popular Fatgbem- Durbar road axis.

It was learned that larger percent of the affected traders survive through the business activities carried out in the demolished shops.

One of the affected traders, Mrs. Rosemary Nwachukwu, told Vanguard that she received the notice on Monday and the government commenced demolition two days after.
