Lagos Estate & Street Residents at Loggerheads over Construction of Fence in the Middle of the Road | WATCH



Residents of Peninsula Estate and Engr. Ehizhokale John Street in the Sangotedo area of Lagos State are at loggerheads after the Estate erected a fence, blocking the major road to the street in defence of what they call private infrastructure.

The residents of the street are lamenting the action as alternative routes are dangerous and are destroying their vehicles.

The Estate residents claim that the street residents were asked to pay N350,000 each, as against N1,000,000 they (Estate residents) paid to build the roads.

The residents on the street are calling on the State government to act and resolve the problem.

    “They built a wall” who is the they? Call out their names and publicly disgrace such useless and greedy people.

    Sometimes people can be so heartless. How can someone just decide to build a wall on a public road not caring about the welfare and safety of others? how are people are going to move about and make their living? Such an inconvenience my God.

    Times are hard enough without some greedy fellows adding to it by blocking public roads. And why is Lagos state government not doing anything? Smh.

      The roads only exist because of the estate residents paying for it.

    Nonsense that happens when government fails in its planning responsibilities. There is no reason why Lagos government has not indicated where major throughways should be for areas approved for development in 10 year bands. There is no reason why people should live in an estate and feel like they have to be the payers or enforcers of infrastructure needs.

    One of the residents sued their ass and the court gave judgement and awarded damages worth 11.5 million Naira for breaching his fundamental human right. Leanrt they are begging the resident now but to late.
