Officials of the Federal Housing Authority (FHA) have demolished some buildings in Abule Ado near the Lagos-Badagry Expressway.
They came with security men, who provided no cover for the officials who carried out the demolition.
About 10 buildings were affected during the exercise.
Some neighbours said that the officials came in the early hours for the operation.
The demolition, it was learnt, started at around 6am Saturday.
The buildings affected were situated inside the Stone Water Estate and Ado Royal Garden Estate, Abule Ado.
It was gathered from neighbours that the buildings were on the Right of Way (RoW), and that the government intends to construct roads in the areas where those houses were built.
Some houses in the area were said to have been marked for demolition and given a 21-day evacuation notice.
But the demolition, they said, affected houses not marked for demolition.
A member of Maranatha Prayer Ministry, Jude Nkanebe, said he was called at about 8:30am that the ministry has been demolished, adding that the ministry was not marked for demolition, and therefore was not informed or served with any paper or document regarding evacuation or demolition.Follow us on social media
