Don't constitute a nuisance in lagos. I wonder how people reason. Why would I allow someone bring the value of my property down because he left his village to set up shanties in a high end area.

I see some people blaming Jonathan for Lekki demolition. Where is the state governor? Where is the Local government chairman? This is a state issue and not a federal issue

You are VERY INSENSITIVE. So, lives of women and children put on the line to 'beautify Lagos' is cute.

Whatever happened to resettlement? How can concept of humaneness not be understood by a legal-practitioner governor?

Well in Nigeria only idiots rule - regardless of how clever their CVs appear.

oh no. i know those people, poor ones living in that slump. those people will now be homeless.I used to pass along that area and buy fresh tomatoes and pepper from them along the road side. eya

hilary obiorah said...

I know this is a welcomed development, but when you chase them away without another option, they are just gonna go settle on another land. Plus why raze it down, they could cause serious damage or kill a person.

Those. Aboki shoe makers who are majorly the shanty owners erect their shanties on other people's properties and gradually turns the place into a den for theives. Linda pls always report comprehensively, most LIB will only comment base on your report and you therefore owe us a duty.

Shameful irresponsible comments of ingrates. You folks should for once appreciate the crime preventive efforts of the Police. I wonder how responsible you are at your respective work places. Police, I salute your courage. Please, you need to do more because theses shanties are home to criminals and potential BH operatives. God Help Naija. Jay

Linda, please correct this error. It should be "...........are currently 'being' razed down......" Thanks.

Anonymous said...

it's not fair. Those people are poor and may have no where to go. The only reason why those people are being chased away is because the govt want to renovate that place and sell it to rich people. It will be a miracle if the government renovate it and call back the original owners of the land....smh

Anonymous said...

Are you sure they are not illegal squatters that the owners have been trying to evict? Cos I know how stubborn these people can be. You will have to negotiate money with them before they will agree to go. Sometimes, they will refuse.

Thank you police for your proactive efforts. Linda, I do not know where you belong, whether with the senseless commentators who never see any good in good things or with the reasonable few who realizes the imperatives of the demolition. Anyway, for once again, Police una well done oooooooo.

Abeg when you become even a common constable which you will never and can never be! Then come tell us how we should evict illegal occupants of people's properties. Am sure you don't even know the meaning of silly cos that is the definition of your comment, every dey Talk so make I join write.

You can't even pass their exams how much becoming a constanble. Continue insulting the police when you can't even be one cos you don't have what it takes to be.

Forced evictions violate international law.

Anonymous said...

Prof. Anon 3.56pm, in addition to your observation, it is also not possible for fire to "raze up" a building. "Raze down" is therefore incorrect. Fire razes. Full stop.

Kamtochukwu, I agree that NPF is a "joke and irresponsible" as you put it but it is all because Nigerians like you are irresponsible, crazy and do not deserve to wear the human skin. By the way, what are you and your family contributing to the enforcement of law and order in this country, bloody criminal.
