The Lagos State Government has revealed the discovery of additional apartments beneath the Osborne Bridge in the Ikoyi area of Lagos.

This revelation comes after the earlier discovery of 86 apartments under the Dolphin Estate Bridge in Ikoyi, where tenants reportedly pay an annual rent of N250,000.

Subsequently, the Ministry of Environment announced the uncovering of yet another illegal settlement in the Ikoyi area of the state, highlighting ongoing efforts to address such unauthorized habitation.

The Lagos State Commissioner for Environment and Water Resources, Tokunbo Wahab, posted on his social media handle on Thursday, sharing a video showcasing the illegal apartments discovered beneath the Osborne Bridge in Ikoyi.

“Another illegal settlement was discovered under the Osborne Bridge, Ikoyi. Lagos State Environmental Sanitation Corps @LAGESCOfficial (KAI) commenced immediate clearance operation,”

While the Commissioner for Environment and Water Resources, Tokunbo Wahab, shared the video of the illegal apartments beneath the Osborne Bridge, he did not provide additional details about the settlement, unlike the case of the Dolphin Estate Bridge occupants who were reported to be residing in 86 partitioned rooms sized “10×10 and 12×10”.

“18 individuals squatting illegally under the bridge leading from Dolphin Estate were arrested yesterday 30th of April, 2024 by the officials from the Lagos State Environmental Sanitation Corps,” the commissioner wrote.

“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.

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