Owners of bonded terminals in Ajegunle, Ajeromi Ifelodun area of Lagos State have been given 21 days to vacate their current locations or risk being apprehended by security operatives.
This directive was given on Monday by the Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Mr Rotimi Ogunleye, after a closed-door meeting with the Commissioner of Police, Mr Edgal Imohimi, and owners of the terminals at the State Police Command in Ikeja.
Mr Ogunleye, who attended the meeting in company of the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Security Mr Yinka Akinrinde, also directed trailers parked on various streets in Ajegunle and Olodi Apapa to vacate, stressing that the bonded terminals are located in residential areas thereby conflicting with the state’s Urban and Regional Planning Law.
He said the illegal siting of the terminals had disrupted the socio-economic lives of the people of Ajegunle and its environs, causing hardship to motorists.
Recall that Governor Akinwunmi Ambode had on July 26, 2018 led a team of members of the State Executive Council and security operatives to the premises of the terminals and ordered their immediate closure.
