Images: Concern as refuse litters Lagos streets

Who will clear the heaps of refuse littering the streets of Lagos, the Centre of Excellence?

That appears to be question on the lips of almost all Lagosians as residents express concern over the implications of the recent development.

Medical practitioners are worried at the spreading heaps of refuse, saying it could lead to outbreak of epidemic in the state.

The Lagos State Government recently announced a ban on the operations of cart pushers and wheelbarrow operators, saying their activities are inimical to the environmental cleanliness of the state.

There appears to be uncertainty over the fate of private waste disposal firms, a situation that may have led to the non-clearance of waste from most streets and waste dumps across the state.
