Lagos uncovers 86 under bridge rooms where tenants pay N250k annually


Tokunbo Wahab, commissioner for environment and water resources, says the state has uncovered apartments under the Dolphin estate bridge where tenants pay N250,000 in annual rent.


Wahab disclosed that 86 rooms partitioned into 10×10 and 12×10, and a container, were discovered by an enforcement team of the Lagos ministry of environment.


In a post alongside videos posted on X on Wednesday, the commissioner said the illegal structures have been destroyed.


“A total number of 86 rooms, partitioned into 10×10 and 12×10, and a container used for different illegal activities, were discovered under the Dolphin Estate bridge,” the commissioner wrote.


 “They have all been removed by the enforcement team of Lagos State Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources.”

Commenting on the incident, Kunle Rotimi-Akodu, special adviser on environment to the Lagos governor, said 33 persons have so far been arrested by officials of the Lagos State Environmental Sanitation Corps (LAGESC).


“The bridge has hitherto housed 86 rooms, partitioned into 10×10 and 12×10. Squatters there have been paying an average rent of N250k p.a,” he said
