There has been outrage over the demolition of twelve churches on 2nd Avenue, Festac Town, Lagos state by officials of the federal Housing Authority
It was gathered that a market and a car mart were also affected in the exercise carried out on Sunday.
The demolition started around five o’clock in the morning and continued till around three in the evening.
The leader of the Gate of Righteousness Evangelical International church, Pastor Joshua Obang said he stated his ministry in the community eighteen years ago and wondered why his church was targeted for demolition.
Obang said there was no other warning prior to the seven days notice
He claimed that the Government took advantage of the strike action by judicial workers adding that nobody could approach the court for injunctions to stop the demolition.
