You’re Making People Homeless With House Demolitions – Yemi Alade Takes a Stand Against Lagos Govt

The Nigerian artist Yemi Alade has criticized the state government of Lagos for demolishing structures in Arowojogbe in Mende estate.

The state administration started demolishing several Mende estate buildings last weekend, which infuriated some locals on social media.

The Lagos government, according to a building resident, merely provided a two-hour warning.

“The Lagos state government gave us two hours to park out, where do they want us to go? This is the Nigeria we are in, they gave us two hours,” the resident said.

Alade argued that the house demolition would lead to the “devaluation of lands in Lagos”.

The songstress also called on the state government to refund affected legal buyers the monies paid when purchasing their land.

“Thank you for giving me & millions of others a reason to NOT INVEST IN LAGOS REAL ESTATE @followlasg. Maybe when you are done turning the whole lagos into a network of Roads with no residents then your MEGA city dreams will be complete. Please start refunding legal buyers atleast,” she wrote.

“Just imagine witnessing a tragedy or even worse being a victim and people who were not present debunk your claims. Karma dey boomerang , no worry!!! Na turn by turn.

“Why and how was the building plan of Mende villa 1 approved in the first place!? @followlasg.

“You have commissioned several building plans in conjunction with Legrande and gained the trust of many. Why dash it all with this one blow? 2hrs notice is trivial!”

Alade continued her outburst in a widely circulated video, where she registered sadness over the losses the demolished house owners suffered.

“Lagos State what’s going on? what’s going on? Does it make sense that people will invest millions of naira, millions of dollars into real estate, buying houses, buying land and Lagos State would go and be breaking walls breaking houses, rendering people homeless overnight?” Alade asked.

“And it’s done serially. It’s done back to back. Right now, Maryland, Mende area is on fire. People are sleeping in their houses, waking up the next day homeless.

“You’re ruining the real estate value of the country, ruining the real estate value of the Lagos. Making people lose trust not only just in the idea of Nigeria but lose hope entirely in the little coin they’ve saved to make their lives worthwhile. To create some kind of generational wealth.

“How is this okay? And why? Does it make sense? Multi-million dollar houses, there is a better way to do things.” [CONTINUE READING HERE]
