Officials of LASBCA stormed the slummy area in the morning and began immediate demolition as residents scampered to get out their belongings. The state government said it issued quit notices to residents of the area one year ago and followed it up with another notice four months ago, but noted that residents refused to vacate their apartments.

“We came here to remove the structures as we have marked them a year ago. The last exercise was four months ago. These structures are not habitable. Our duty is to ensure that government’s land is not encroached on. The land belongs to the LSDPC and we won’t be here if the land does not belong to them. This land is part of the Rent-to-own programme of the state government,” he said.
