Sources, however stated that N20 million was earmarked by the government for the compensation. It was also gathered that N14 million out of the total sum was paid to the family that lost five person to the incident.

The victims are Wahab Oshinaya, Ezekiel Akin-Jesu, Ramota Akinwusi, Daniel Omowumi and Isaac Aduroja.

Presenting the cheques to the beneficiaries on behalf of the state government, the Eexecutive Secretary of Lagos Lands Bureau, Aina Salami, said it was in tandem with the promise made by Governor Babatunde Fashola, that those whose land were taken over would be compensated.
