The ultimatum comes after an inspection tour of the area revealed that many buildings and fences encroach upon the drainage channel, posing a risk of flooding. The state government also issued a stop-work order to Gravitas company for sand filling part of Ikota River, which is reducing the lagoon’s capacity to accommodate water flow.
