The Monitoring, Enforcement and Compliance Department of the Lagos State Ministry of Environment says it has cleared illegal structures and dislodged unauthorized traders around some schools in the Badagry area of the state.

Commissioner for the Environment, Tokunbo Wahab, disclosed this in a statement via X, saying that he ordered an investigation into activities in the area, following a petition written by the authorities of Ajara Senior Secondary School, Badagry, on indiscriminate and unauthorized commercial activities in front of the school by street traders.

The Commissioner added that the operatives also cleared illegal structures and commercial activities around Anglican Primary School Ilogbo- Eremi, Badagry, Morogbo Primary School, Badagry, and Nigerian French Language Village, Badagry.

Wahab stated that the enforcement has become imperative following the discovery that the unwholesome commercial activities within the precinct of the schools are a contributory factor to the rise in truancy, hooliganism and other vices inimical to moral and intellectual development.
