LASG To Clamp Down On Illegal Traders Along Railway Tracks by AutoReportNG: 10:03am On Jan 10


Chairman of the Lagos State Task Force, CSP Olayinka Egbeyemi has declared that the Agency is set to clamp down on all illegal traders along railway tracks across the State, noting that the heavy convergence of illegal traders of various goods around railway tracks is not only suicidal but also against the Environmental Law of the State.

He maintained that in accordance with the Lagos State Environmental Sanitation Law, it was totally unlawful for anyone to hawk, sell or buy goods on railway tracks including all road setbacks and walkways across the State.

In his words, “Strategically, this unusual and dangerous trading practice has led to the death of some people, especially those who were not quick enough to move away from the path of an oncoming train. The primary responsibility of any government is to protect the lives and property of the people, as such the present administration will not relinquish such enormous responsibility."

Egbeyemi, however, warned officials of both Local Government and Market Associations to desist from collecting fees from these illegal traders on railway lines around Oshodi, Mushin, Ikeja-Along, Yaba, Oyingbo and Agege as anyone caught would be severely dealt with in accordance with the Law.

In a related development and in line with the State's policy of eradicating the menace of miscreants and hoodlums, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP Edgal Imohimi has directed CSP Olayinka Egbeyemi to carry out a raid on all criminal hideouts across the State.

Following the directive, the Agency over the weekend arrested 23 notorious miscreants during an overnight raid around Shitta area of Surulere and confiscated substances suspected to be Indian hemp as well as other outlawed illicit drugs such as 'Novalyn and Codeine cough syrups'.

Also, another eight members of the notorious 'Awawa Boys' cultism gang were arrested during enforcement operations carried out around Capitol, Isale-Oja and Agege.

CSP Egbeyemi regretted that most parents have abdicated their responsibility towards their children as youths are now deeply in involved in various forms of gangsterism, stressing that most of the violent crimes being committed in Lagos are being perpetrated by teenagers who lack parental care.

While maintaining that the Agency would continue to raid all areas known to be inhabited by undesirable elements across the State, he disclosed that all those that have been arrested will soon be charged to court for prosecution.

Ko le wok!

There is strong mafia that collects money from them. Money collected are also shared among the police, govt officials etc.

When coming from govt to raid, they are informed and traders are cleared.

When they leave, they are back on track

You don tey for Lagos, you don sabi all their antics, you better relocate soon..

You just nailed it, at times I wonder why its difficult for LASG to chase all these market women that sells on the main road at Idumota, Oshodi and some parts across the state, these market women alone causes 30% of the traffic we had in Lagos.

Anytime its 4-5pm, you dare not near Lagos-Island or pass through Idumota, the way they block road and those Danfo buses as if its their property will amaze you

In as mUch as I DO NOT SUPPORT THE CLAMP DOWN because they are removing food from the mouth of many which in turn leads to social vices. Hence the need to use social media to the best of your advantage such as the pic attached smiley wink

Jokes aside, we are in a democracy not dictatorship. If Newyork People cannot tell Chicago people to leave New York. All of them are white.
Same with us. The days of village are gone. So far we are doing democracy, anybody has every complete right to go to any part of the nation, live there, die there and be buried there. If you are not doing it, you are not exercising your constitutional right. You are still hanging on to village, remaining suspicious and creating an avenue for trouble. This seems to be our main problem in Nigeria.
Everybody comes to Lagos to buy land and build house because Yorubas give you. Why don't you in other areas and villages also let "foreigners" come and buy land and build house and do business?

Yorubas make their marriage very easy. They can borrow cloth and jewelry. Lie down for ground, Marriage don finish. Many "foreiners" can easily marry their girls without problem. But when it is time for you to marry the foreigners girls, difficulty upon difficulty. Them go turn you into UNICEF - feeding the villages and building suspension bridge for the community. How people go gree come your side when you make life impossible for them?

Those under bridge in Oshodi will leave.

They will deface that edifice if they are allowed to stay there.
