Radio Report: Open defecation in Lagos

Despite adopting a new waste management system known as the Cleaner Lagos Initiative, many areas in the Lagos metropolis remain an eyesore, with all manners of wastes, particularly discarded empty bottles, sachets and human wastes, littering the landscape as well as blocking drainage channels; even as heaps of refuse dot the landscape.

While concerned residents expect the drivers of the new waste management system to do the needful by maximally deploying resources to sanitise the environment in the shortest period, they have called for urgent action against open defecation which they observed has taken a more worrisome dimension of recent.

Against this backdrop, Correspondent Innocent Onoh takes a look at certain aspects of open defecation practised in Lagos and their consequences.
