News just reaching us confirms that, in spite of initial resistance put up by traders, armed policemen supervised the demolition of shops in Computer Village, Ikeja earlier yesterday, Wednesday.
According to , about 18 shops in total were destroyed.
A witness who lost his two shops to the demolition, said they received eviction notices from the government four days ago.
You may remember that barely a week ago, the Lagos state government announced its decision to move the popular Computer Village from Ikeja to Katangowa. It is not yet clear whether or not the demolition in question is related to this decision.
However, the Lagos state government is yet to make any official statement on the demolition.
