This is at the back of Orchid Road and this place is supposed to be a canal and people have started filling it so that they can build another house and block the water from flowing.

“This is bad, the male voice continued, “I think the government needs to look into this, this is not acceptable as it is going to block the water from flowing. This is at the back of Lakeview 2.”

In response, the Commissioner said the state would take appropriate action, insisting that it is an illegal construction.

Wahab wrote on X, “This is clearly an illegal construction. The Lagos State Government will take action.”
