Lagos State Governor,Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has given traders two days ultimate to vacate the red line rail tracks at Agege.
This was disclosed in a video posted on the X handle of the Senior Special Assistant on new media to the governor, Jubril Gawat.
Sanwo-Olu gave the ultimatum on Wednesday, September 27, while on a tour of the ongoing red line rail project.
One of the places the governor visited is the Agege Station, where he addressed the traders.
According to him the whole tracks will be walled off completely.
“It is government road that’s why government built everything, it is for transportation, it is not for market. I have given you just two days, you can’t stay here, it’s not possible I have told you because we don’t want anybody to die.
“Once the train starts operations it will be plying here always and we don’t anyone to die so that’s it.”
Early this month Governor Sanwo-Olu flagged off the commercial operations train service in the state by riding on the maiden passenger operation on the Blue line rail from Marina Terminal to Mile-2 Station.
