Some Houses In Oshodi Demolished As Owners Cry Out (Photos)

The sight of the demolition exercise at the Oshodi end of Lagos Mainland was a heartbreaking one to behold for owners whose properties were demolished.
It is more worrying for the affected owners when the payment of compensation is yet to reach an advanced stage.

Recall that InsideMainland earlier reported the commencement of demolition of structures on the right of way in Oshodi, Lagos Mainland. The demolition was towards the expansion of Murtala Muhammed International Airport Road.

Speaking to InsideMainland, one of the affected house owners in the demolition, Alhaji Aranseoluwa said although property owners in the area alongside other stakeholders were involved in series of discussions with the government, they are yet to get the compensation package from the government.

“The government is yet to fulfill their own end of the agreement. It was all talks from then till now. The house has now been pulled down, what next?” he said.
“Most people here expects that before the demolition will be carried out, we would have reached an advanced stage even if we are yet to be paid the monies due to us. Till now, all we hear is that they are compiling names but nothing about money has been said,” he added.

As a result of the exercise, more than 50 houses have been pulled down from the Oshodi
