To address urban planning and safety concerns, the Lagos State Government recently removed illegal structures and shanties in Computer Village, located in the Ikeja area.
The operation, which took place on Sunday, was confirmed by an official communication on social media on Monday.
Alongside the announcement, photos of the removal operations were shared, illustrating the efforts to restore order and compliance with regulatory standards in the area.
Computer Village, a bustling hub for technology-related businesses and commerce, has experienced significant growth.
However, this growth has also led to concerns about urban planning, safety, and maintaining orderly development.
An official of the state government who spoke anonymously to journalists said:
”The action taken by the Lagos State Government underscores its commitment to urban development and ensuring that public spaces adhere to the established guidelines and regulations.
”Removing illegal structures and shanties is a proactive step toward addressing these concerns, promoting safety, and ensuring that the area continues functioning effectively as a centre for technology and business activities.
”It also reflects the government’s commitment to enabling businesses to thrive while maintaining public safety and order.
”This action is part of the broader efforts by the Lagos State Government to enhance urban planning, infrastructure development, and the overall quality of life for its residents.
”It serves as a reminder of the importance of adhering to regulatory standards and cooperating with authorities to create a more organized and sustainable urban environment in Lagos.”
