Singer Yemi Alade tackles Lagos state govt over recent demolition of houses

Singer Yemi Alade has berated the Lagos State Government over the recent demolition of some houses in Maryland.

The ‘Johnny’ crooner lamented that the Government was making life more difficult for citizens by rendering them homeless overnight.

She also said the ongoing demolition in the state was affecting the real estate sector negatively, adding that it is driving investors away.

Speaking in a video message shared via her Instagram account, Alade said: “Lagos State, what’s going on? Does it make sense that people will invest millions of naira and dollars into real estate; buy houses and lands and the State Government will demolish the place and render people homeless overnight?

“This thing is happening repeatedly. Right now, Maryland, Mende area is on fire. People are sleeping in their houses, waking up the next day, homeless.”

“You’re ruining the real estate value of the state and country, making people lose trust not only just in the idea of Nigeria but lose hope entirely in the little coins they saved to make their lives worthwhile. How is this okay? Why why?”
