A systemic random sampling of one in every houses in some quarters/ major street was done through a well-structured questionnaire. Other source of information used were interviews, and observation. Data collected reviewed that there was upsurged in population which had a multiplier effect on some factors that caused the absurdity that resulted in urban decay of infrastructure in Owo. It was observed that the city lacked some social infrastructure like stable power/ electricity supply, good road network, water supply, drainage supply and commercial buildings like banks and market when compared with the rate of population growth.
