Residents of Mushin community, Lagos Mainland, are currently gripped by fear of an impending epidemic breakout following the continuous neglect of the area by Waste collectors attached to the Lagos State Waste Management Agency (LAWMA).
According to a resident, Lincoln Bamidele, the waste Management Agency has completely abandoned its duties in the area.
Bamisile in a note sent to Eyes Of Lagos stated that LAWMA has failed to evacuate waste in the area for more than three weeks.
According to the resident, the areas affected the Lagos University Teaching Hospital in Idi Araba, Ishaga Close, Itire Road off Isolo Road and Ilasamaja.
“The dangerous aspect of the situation is the fact that there are hundreds of schools within this vicinity and locations, which will definitely sooner or later affect the health of the thousands of school children,” he said.
Meanwhile, Bamisile who appealed to Governor Akinwunmi Ambode to intervene in the situation stated that “I need not overstate the repercussions and it does not seem to have any hope of getting any attention anytime soon.
