urgent action: become a friend of Badia East
On 18 September 2015, bulldozers suddenly started demolishing hundreds of homes at Ijora Badia East. Thousands were rendered homeless in a matter of hours. The bulldozers worked on 18-19 September and then came back again, under direction of the Lagos State Physical Planning and Development Authority (LSPPDA), on 22 September 2015, moving from Badia East toward Badia West. If the demolition starts again and reaches all the area presently at risk, more than 30,000 people will lose their homes, businesses and community facilities. >> read the 28 September 2015 press statement from the Friends of Badia East
