Meanwhile in an another report by Legit.ng, over 100 suspected homeless people were evacuated from the Redemption Camp on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.

It was reported that the evacuation was carried out by policemen and security personnel of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG).

The destitute comprising of couples with their young children, middle-aged men and women as well as the elderly were said to have been dumped at different locations in Abeokuta, the Ogun state capital.

It was also gathered that policemen and RCCG security personnel raided the worship ground in the early hours of Wednesday, May 22 and apprehended the victims.

The security agents were said to have bundled the destitute into waiting vehicles and drove them to Abeokuta under the cover of the night. The sight of the destitute at Oke-Sokori, Kuto and Iyana Mortuary areas of Abeokuta sparked tension among residents.

Some of the destitute, who claimed to have spent between six months and one year at the Redemption Camp, accused the church authorities of victimisation.
