No fewer than 5,000 residents of Iganmu Alawo community in Apapa Iganmu local council development area were yesterday rendered homeless as the Lagos State Taskforce on Environmental and Special Offences (Enforcement) Unit evicted the slum dwellers.

The chairman of the taskforce, Mr.BayoSulaiman , a chief superintendent of police, who led the demolition squad , said the state government could no longer allow the existence of the slum in the heart of the metropolis given its status as Africa’s mega city.
