A BN reader sent an E-mail regarding an imminent plan to demolish the popular picturesque treeline vista in Magodo area of Lagos state.
According to the reader, The Magodo Residents Association (MRA) in conjunction with the Lagos State Parks and Gardens (LASPARK) have perfected plans to destroy a most beautiful legacy of greenery in the area.
Here is what she stated:
“Please help save one of Magodo’s defining features. The beautiful trees that line Bashiru Shittu Avenue have become a very valuable source of more than just beauty. They provide shade, fresh air, land cover from flood, and more.”
“Please help raise awareness about this urgently. Today (18th of May 2015), they mowed down 8 of these trees and the plan is to completely destroy them (There are about 100). Many residents jog and walk along this route and many movie scenes have been shot here.”
“More trees have been earmarked for destruction, so please help raise awareness quickly.”
