The Lagos State Government on Wednesday said the Special Committee on the Clean-up of Ikoyi, Victoria Island and Lekki was set to carry out the second and final phase of the exercise.
The clean-up is to ensure sanity on the outskirts of the areas, by clearing illegal structures and dislodging street traders.
While briefing journalists on the exercise in Alausa, the Secretary to the State Government, Mr. Tunji Bello, who chairs the committee, said the clean-up would focus on all the inner streets of the areas.
“For all those who have been dislodged from the major streets, but are finding their way back to the inner streets, this is a clear warning that the task force is coming after them.
“We are also going to embark on a mop-up operation of all the areas that have already been cleared by the task force,” Bello added.
The SSG also warned the authorities of the Federal Marriage Registry in Ikoyi, whose patrons allegedly parked cars indiscriminately on the road, to desist from the act or risk being prosecuted and their vehicles impounded.
He reiterated the determination of the Akinwunmi Ambode administration to restore the original master plan of Ikoyi, VI and Lekki.
