It was gathered that residents of the Oke-Egan Community, Kayetoro in Eleko area of Ibeju-Lekki, Lagos, held peaceful protest at the Lagos State House of Assembly on Friday. They were at the Assembly to demand compensation for the demolition of their houses by officials of the Lagos State physical planning authority.
