Lagos Gives Traders At POWA Complex 24hrs Notice Before Demolition

Lagos Gives Traders At POWA Complex 24hrs Notice Before Demolition

A vacation order notice issued by the Lagos State government has been pasted on the wall of the Police Officers Wives Association (POWA) shopping complex in Computer Village, Ikeja. The complex, which is located at 20 Otigba, Computer Village, is temporarily closed.

This is due to the notice that was passed by the Lagos State Task Force, which was reported to be an evacuation notice by the Lagos State government before the planned demolition of the shopping complex. Having served the 24-hour quit notice to all traders occupying the shopping complex, the traders claimed that the demolition plan was proposed by Achieving Greatness Limited to the national president of POWA and the national market leader.

However, it was discovered that the government gave the quit notice because the POWA Phase I and II had become dilapidated, defaced, and distressed as a reason for planned demolition.

The traders who are affected are likely to stage a protest, registering their displeasure. However, some traders at the shopping complex on December 20 protested against the move by the government to demolish the complex.

Also, occupants alleged that the wife of the Inspector-General of Police, Elizabeth Egbetokun, purportedly gave the directive for the demolition of the property.
