Woman in tears as Lagos issues demolition notice 2 months after property acquisition

Story by Uchechi OGBUEHI-DANIEL, Lagos
A video on social media has shown a woman bemoaning a demolition notice delivered to her Lagos State residence only two months after she moved there.
The woman, whose identity is still unknown, sobbed as she described the experience in the video that went viral on Monday.
A picture of the demolition notice dated May 7, 2024 was also attached to the video.
She said: “We bought that property in February, and we’ve only been there for two months. All the hard work, all the sleepless nights, everything… If you’re in Lagos, you’ll know how much property in Eti-Osa costs.
“Each time my son sees me crying, he will always ask me why I am crying. How do I explain this to our son? What do I tell my children? I’m trying so hard to be strong, but this is very painful.
“I don’t wish for anybody to work so hard and face something like this. I don’t.”
