Lagos Residents Left Homeless After Demolition Drive

Hundreds of residents in Lagos are facing homelessness after their homes were demolished by authorities in a recent urban regeneration project. The demolitions, which took place on Friday, March 22nd, affected four communities: Otto Ilogbo, Ifesowapo, Ifeoluwa, and Toluwani.

The Lagos Urban Regeneration project aims to address challenges faced by these communities, including flooding, sanitation issues, and limited infrastructure. However, the sudden demolitions have sparked public outrage, leaving many residents without homes and scrambling for shelter.

The affected communities were primarily situated under bridges and flyovers in the Ebute Metta area. With their homes now reduced to rubble, these once-bustling neighborhoods face an uncertain future.

While the Lagos government aims to improve these areas, the immediate displacement of residents has caused significant hardship. It remains to be seen if the regeneration project will provide adequate relocation and support for those who lost their homes.
