Although the demolition exercise faced no resistance from various property owners but in a press briefing in Ilesa early on Saturday, six Ijesa elders appealed to the government charged with the construction of the road, to speed up on the aspect of valuation and payment of monetary compensation to the owners of demolished structures, so as to provide opportunity to cushion the catastrophe and loss resulting from this action, emphasizing the chaotic situation already present at the Ereja-Okesa-Imo-Breweries eyebrow streets.
