He recalled that the Lagos State Official Gazette No. 20, Vol. 26 stating the notice of revocation of Right of Occupancy was issued as far back as 13th May 1993, where it highlighted that all parcels of land stretching from Maroko eastward to the boundary of Lagos Lagoon, Lekki Lagoon and Omu Creek in the South by the Atlantic Ocean including Refuge Island, Erekusu and Ita Oko Island, excluding all established villages, towns and settlements in Eti-Osa and Ibeju Lekki Local Government spanning an area of approximately 823.0km was acquired for overriding public interest since 1981 for the construction of Lower, Medium and Upper-income Housing Scheme as well as the construction of Schools, Hospitals and Private Estate Developers Scheme.

The Acting General Manager observed with dismay that despite notices served for illegal development within the scheme by individuals, private estate developers and land speculators, construction activities still continued unabated without proof of land title or approved building plan.

While hinting that some site selections had already been carried out within Idera scheme, he declared that any illegal structure that can hinder the government’s proposed development plan will no longer be permitted or tolerated, maintaining that the era of all illegal acquisitions and development on government schemes has come to an end.
