Governor Mike Sonko yesterday  issued a 14-day ultimatum to private developers who have encroached on public land and road reserves to demolish illegal structures or face eviction.

Speaking in South C estate when he supervised the demolition of a wall that had encroached on a road reserve, he declared that all illegal structures in the city will be brought down to pave way for various projects. “We will repossess all grabbed public land and ensure all county projects that had stalled due to land grabbing are completed,” the Governor said.
