Ejes Gist Nigeria reports that an ultimatum of A-10 days was given to owners of shops and buildings constructed and built under high-tension wires across the Delta state to vacate voluntarily or be forced to do so in accordance with demolition.

This is coming on the heels of officials of the State Environment Task Force who embarked on labelling illegal structures constructed on the streets of Warri, Warri South State Local Government Area for demolition under high tension.

Taskforce Chairman, Hon. On Thursday 18 February 2021, in Warri, Sylvester Oromoni made this known to newsmen, noting that the exercise is continuing where the activity ended last year, emphasising that owners of any shop constructed under high tension should vacate or face demolition by the end of February 2021.

He warned that all unauthorised buildings and shanties invading the streets would be demolished, adding that after the expiry of the ‘Removal Order’ served by the Department, the demolition would take place.

Oromoni said that the government viewed with dismay the vast invasion of individuals into the right of ways by private developers.

Before erecting their houses, he implored Deltans to always seek permission from appropriate agencies.

“It would remove all illegal structures and buildings built by people under high tension without valid government approval across the state,” he added.

Furthermore, Oromoni warned miscreants, illegal mechanics, food vendors and owners of illegal shanties across the state to quit or face demolition before February 28, 2021, and the task force could no longer tolerate the aesthetic beauty of our streets being incessantly defaced.

He observed that there is a great risk of attracting electric shock in a situation where illegal structures are installed attached to electric polls, stressing that Gov. Okowa’s government can no longer tolerate that in the state, he concluded.

In the process, the chairman was accompanied by Sir. Ighor Akpojotor, SSA Special Duties, Mrs. Obire Rachael, Principal Superintendent of Environmental Health, Mr. Destiny Onojaine, Mrs. Philomena Odjegbu, Mr. Michael Oyimor, Hon. Frank Alale, for example.

The areas visited include, among others, NPA, Main Market, Robert Path, Ibo Market,
