Ogun government to demolish secret bridge constructed by unknown persons in a forest in the state

The Ogun state government has ordered the demolition of a bridge constructed by unknown persons in a forest in the state.

The bridge was reportedly built across Oluwo river to link Omo Forest in Area J4 to a village in Ondo State.

The Ogun state government referred to the construction of the bridge as “illegal” and asked for it to be demolished.

The bridge is suspected to have been constraints by illegal loggers, who have been engaging in illegal felling of trees.

On Saturday, Jan 9, the state Commissioner for Forestry, Hon. Tunji Akinosi led a monitoring team to Laagan village where he saw the 50-metre long bridge.
