Delta’s Oshimili Council clamps down on illegal squatters over insecurity


The cChairman of the Oshimili Local Government Area of Delta State, Mr. Ndukwe Louis has issued an ultimatum to all illegal squatters in the entire council to vacate the places

He said the order was necessary to forestall any security breach of the area by external persons he says constitute danger to the safety of people

The council boss cautioned that measures would be taken to demolish illegal shanties where residents are not documented, a development he said in his letter to such places would help breed security threats by people who live in places without addresses.

He stated:

“Be informed that due to the security challenges we recently face as a Local government and the urgency of the need to rid our area of all secret hideouts where criminals use as safe heavens, we herewith communicate that you vacate, advise others considered your wards within our LGA to move  and take up rents with our people, live with our people, or build permanent structure that shall be registered and owned by you, your proxies or wards like every other Nigerian who live and do business in our LGA.”

Take note that after seven working days of this notice, all camps and unapproved structures in our LGA shall be totally declared illegal and destroyed. Recourse shall only be given to structures approved by the Oshimili North Local Government and the Delta State Government.
