#OtodoGbame: Task Force Launches Fresh Attacks On The Lagos Community (VIDEO)
The Lagos waterfront community has been been under eviction order for over a while now. Last October, Governor Akinwunmi Ambode had given the community a one week ultimatum that the community’s residents evict the settlement.
According to a Premium Times reports, the communities had then approached a Lagos State High Court at Igbosere, seeking an injunction “restraining the state government from carrying out its planned demolition of waterfront communities across the state and preventing the government or its agents from evicting occupants of the community pending the hearing of the suit.”
The Judge granted the prayers of the community. However, fire razed the community in November 2016 forcing some of the residents to evacuate the settlement.
Official attacks reportedly occured at the ending of last month. But then, fresh one is being launched on Otodogbame community according to emerging reports. One life was confirmed lost among others, even as the community watch the force raze their dwelling place by fire.
