Barring any last minute changes, four popular filling stations on Ikorodu road, Lagos Mainland, will be demolished by the Lagos State Government to make way for fresh developments in the axis, InsideMainland can authoritatively report.

InsideMainland reliably gathered that four filling stations including Oando branch at Maryland and Idiroko, Mobil at Maryland and Conoil along Anthony, Ikorodu road will be demolished by the government to make way for a road expansion and the construction of new BRT lanes and parks.

At the moment, the filling stations have been marked for demolition by the officials of the Lagos State Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development with some businesses occupying the properties already shut down.

In addition, some of the businesses had already laid off staff members owing to the effect of the development on their operations.

Speaking to InsideMainland, a source at one of the affected filling stations told InsideMainland that the government officials first visited the location in August 2018 before returning later to shut the branch, marking it for demolition.
