The local government of Amuwo Odofin (AOLG) said on Thursday it had finalized arrangements to auction the abandoned and unclaimed containers seized by the city council after the expiration of the 21-day notice it issued.

Council Vice President Olusegun Idris said the containers were seized to decongest the area and reduce the crime rate recorded there.

He added that the abandoned containers and trucks made the vehicular movement through Mile 2 and the Industrial Park, in Amuwo Odofin tedious.

Idris noted that truck drivers had made the area’s roads, lawns and parklands a dump for their containers.

“There have been many complaints and requests from the residents of the farm. “They complained of incessant robberies and attacks by thugs, people sleeping in the containers and there are so many on the roads.

“The council was also unable to make the repairs planned for that area,” he said.

The vice president said it became necessary to seize the containers after the city council made several calls on the owners to evacuate them, but all to no avail.

He said the council had decided to auction the containers because the Abule-Ado area office, where they were relocated, was needed for other things.

“We have given them 21 more days to come with proof of ownership and claim the containers

“When that time passes, we will auction the unclaimed ones,” he said.
