Illegally converted houses: Lagos govt issues 30-days final quit notice

2 min read

Lagos State Government has given 30-day final notice to owners/occupiers of residential buildings illegally converted to churches, mosques, clubhouses, lounges, and bars across the state without approval for change of use, to revert to the original use of the structure.

The notice was made public by Hon. Commissioner, Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources, Lagos State, Tokunbo Wahab via his official X (formerly Twitter) handle on Wednesday, 31st of January, 2024.

According to Lagos state government, the notice is a sequel to the distortion of the master plan of Lagos State, especially residential areas, by some people who are in gross disregard to the regulatory provisions of the law turning residential areas into clubhouses and worship centres thereby constituting a nuisance to the environment.

The removal notice became imperative following security concerns of citizens and repeated complaints of non-adherence to safety and security guidelines issued to the club owners, the public notice reveals.

The public notice reads: “Any owner of buildings in residential areas that have been converted to churches, mosques, clubs, bars or lounges without the requisite approvals should evict such occupants before the expiration of the 30 days’ final notice as the state will not give further notice of sealing but outright removal of such non-conforming buildings at the cost of the owners.”

Also recall that the Lagos State government, on Sunday, 28th of January, 2024, issued a directive for the eviction of illegal occupants under the Ijora Causeway Bridge and the Lagos Blue Rail Line overhead bridge in Ijora.
