Computer Village Ikeja

The State commissioner for Urban Development said after the relocation of traders, the area would be converted into a world-class ICT Park.

In its spirited efforts to transform Lagos into a mega city, the Governor Akinwunmi Ambode's bulldozers might be working at the Computer Village, Ikeja soon.

The state government has in the past months been leveling and destroying 'illegal' structures and shanties in the city.

Al though the government said the destruction of these communities including Otodo-Gbame in Lekki, was forestall an environmental disaster, thousands have been rendered homeless.

In a statement by the State Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Wasiu Anifowose, it said traders at Computer Village will be relocated to Katangwa in Agbado/Oke-Odo.

Speaking at the 2017 Ministerial Press briefing in Alausa, Ikeja on Tuesday, April 25, Anifowose said after the relocation, the area would be converted into a world-class ICT Park.

According to him, the move will curb environmental degradation, housing stock deficit and traffic congestion in the Ikeja axis.
