As a measure to contain the spread of the coronavirus outbreak in Lagos, the State Government on March 22, issued a ban on all religious and social gathering of over 20 people within the state. On Sunday, Guardian TV went around the city to monitor compliance and here's what we discovered.
The Lagos state government has announced a ban on commercial motorcycles and tricycles in the city’s major residential and business hubs in the state capital. While this is not the first ban on commercial bikes, known locally as Okadas, this time, the state has also explicitly banned operations of motorcycle-hailing startups. InsideStuff brings you why the state government needs to be encouraged.
Hundreds of people living in waterfront communities in the sprawling megacity of Lagos are homeless after the state government launched a renewed push to clear settlements in the name of aesthetics and development. Midnight bulldozing and forcible removals continue despite a court ruling three years ago calling the actions illegal and inhumane. Some residents are now fighting back and demanding to return to their homes.
