    A bridge being build in Ogun State is facing a demolition order because the Ogun State Government did not see a good reason for the bridge to be allowed to be used.

    The bridge was built across Oluwo river and it stretches to Omo Forest in Area J4 to a village in Ondo State.

    The Ogun state is against the project and it wants it to be demolished. The state authority classified did not know who began building the bridge and the do not know who owns the project. Also, they do not know I any federal government money is been spent to build this bridge.

    Also, the bridge has been classified as an illegal bridge and it will be demolished asap.

    According to Akinosi, those constructing the bridge were doing so to easily transport stolen state’s forest resources by illegal loggers and have them taken away to neighboring states.

    He disclosed that some unscrupulous elements are behind the illegal bridge, saying it must have gulped about N15 million to N20 million.

    He threatened to arrest and prosecute settlers keeping illegal arms to perpetrate crimes in the area.

    "Armed soldiers would remain part of the frequent monitoring exercises in order to prevent banditry which is becoming prevalent nationwide," he said.
