The state task force led by the Federal Controller of Works, Mr Olukayode Popoola, particularly targeted shanties along the service lane at Ladipo, Toyota and Charity Bus tops, as well as those located under the bridge leading to the airport road.
Every item found along the way including automobile parts was cleared.
Cars and trucks carrying containers were also towed-off the right of way.
