LASG Gives 48-hour Ultimatum to 1004 Estate Residents

By on November 14, 2012


The Lagos state government has given the residents of 1004 a 48 hr ultimatum before they shut  down the group of flats. This was due to the failure of the residents to pay outstanding Land Use charges. They have been ordered to pay within 48 hours. Several officials of the state Ministry of Finance sealed off the estate for about five hours on Monday, locking out residents and visitors from the estate.

In a letter to residents, the management have appealed to residents owing the Land Use charge for 2011 and 2012 to pay up so as to void a shutting down of the estate. “We wish to urgently demand all flats that are still owing 2011, 2012 Land Use charge, insurance and ground rent bills to please pay up, as the grace period granted the estate is just 48 hours.”

    The behaviour of the MoF is unimaginably crass. Perhaps the next illogical move is to block off the whole of Victoria Island because some residents haven’t paid their “dues”.
