The Lagos State Ministry of Physical Planning Urban Development has declared about 105 estates Eti-Osa and Ibeju-Lekki Local Government areas as illegal settlements.

This information was contained in an advertorial which was placed in many national dailies on Tuesday, February 18, 2020.

The majority of residents in these estates are middle-class citizens as well as civil servants. The government mentioned that these estates layouts are not captured in the Smart City Plan of the state.

In recent time, many settlements in the state have been destroyed and residents displaced.  The only reason put forward by the government is the same –  not inline with the Lagos Master Plan.
