OFFICIALS of Lagos State government, on Monday, stormed Oshodi, to undertake, in particular, a survey of the area boys who have converted the place to their residential abode, while paying rents to some who had forcefully arrogated to themselves the roll of “landlords.”
According to eyewitness, those involved officials include men from the State Ministry of Environment, Lagos State Task Force on Environmental Sanitation (Task Force), among others.
The officials were said to have come to the place, moved round the various nooks and crannies and took several snap shots in order to better capture the scene.
Lagos Metro could not ascertain what the mission of the officials was as of press time.
When contacted, the Public Affairs Officer of Task Force, Mr Taofiq Adebayo, said he was not aware of the visit, adding that officials of the agency might have accompanied another government agency to the site for support.
