Lagos-Calabar Highway: Okun-Ajah Community Accuses Govt of Favoritism, Plans 2,000 House Demolitions

The Okun-Ajah community in Lagos State is expressing concerns about the planned demolition of over 2,000 homes for the construction of the Lagos-Calabar coastal highway. Led by traditional ruler Baale Sikiru Olukesi Okanlawon and secretary Balogun Kamorudeen, they allege that the Ministry of Works is causing injustice and injury.

The 700-kilometre road infrastructure, costing an estimated N15 trillion, is set to be completed in eight years. The initial construction phase has commenced at Eko Atlantic City and will end at Lekki Deep Seaport, with N1.06 trillion already released.

The community is urging lawmakers representing the Eti-Osa Local Government Area of Lagos State and the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) to intervene. They are also appealing to the Inspector General of Police to prevent the use of police personnel for the demolition enforcement.

The community is calling on the President of Nigeria, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the Governor of Lagos State, the Senator, Member of the House of Representatives, and Member of the House of Assembly of Lagos State representing the Eti-Osa Local Government Area to support the Okun-Ajah Community against the impending injustice and injury.
