Operatives of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA), in collaboration with the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), have demolished shanties impeding free flow of traffic in and out of the port city of Apapa.

The General Manager (GM) of LASTMA, Mr Bolaji Oreagba, who disclosed this, said that the clean-up exercise was conducted after the expiration of notices served on owners of the illegal shanties, kiosks, container shops and abandoned trailers.

Oreagba, who noted that the exercise would last for seven days, said the illegal shanties around the nation’s port didn’t only constitute health and safety risks, but also served as a haven for criminals who used such locations as hideouts.

He explained that, “All abandoned trailers from the port’s first gate down to the underneath of Lilypond Bridge constituting environmental nuisance were all towed by the team.

“The area is becoming a breeding ground for miscreants and hoodlums who on a daily basis extort money from motorists and impede the free flow of traffic.”

The GM, Security, NPA, Mohammed Jamil Khalil, who noted that the exercise was long overdue, maintained that NPA carried out radio jingles and enlightenment campaigns educating the public on the need for the clean-up exercise.
