Lagos government  removes street gates over illegal closure


The Lagos State Special Task Force Committee on demolition of gated streets has commenced the removal of gates in areas that failed to comply with the government’s directive on gated streets regulation.

The enforcement, which kicked off on Thursday, was implemented in the Surulere, Ajeromi Ifelodun, Ikeja, Isolo, Ikosi-Isheri, Ojodu and Amuwo-Odofin areas of the state.

The Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Community Affairs, Alhaji Tajudeen Quadri, said the state government had earlier directed that all street gates be made accessible between 5am and 12midnight every day.

Quadri said some communities had refused to comply with the order, adding that the violators posed a security threat to the government’s resolve to achieve a safe and secure Lagos.

He explained that the government’s policy on gated streets was meant to earn the confidence of residents and investors in the state.

He said, “The act of partial or permanent closure of gates against  directives of the state affects businesses, encourages miscreants to take advantage of residents and get away with their belongings and in case of fire incidents; the community affected will not be easily accessible by  rescue teams.”

The special assistant explained that the act of denying motorists and pedestrians’ access by early closure of community gates did not positively reflect the image of the state government as being investor-friendly.

He added that the policy, being an executive order by the State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, might warrant arrest and prosecution of non-complying communities where necessary.
