Lagos – The Lagos State Building Control Agency (LASBCA) and the Lagos State Physical Planning Permit Authority (LASPPPA) on Wednesday commenced the demolition of some illegal structures at the Banana Island, Ikoyi.
The demolition exercise which is in line with an earlier directive of Governor Babajide Sanwo-olu is also being carried out in conjunction with the Lagos State Task Force.
The General Manager of LASBCA, Arc. Gbolahan Owodunni Oki, led the demolition teams to sites.
The exercise is in line with the agency’s core statutory responsibilities of identification and removal/demolition of distressed, illegal and non-conforming structures in the State.
It will be recalled that last week, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu in company with some state officials visited the site of the collapsed seven-storey building at the Banana Island.
During the visit, the governor directed the immediate removal of all structures without valid building approvals, especially those seen to have violated building regulations and plans of the State. (LSMOI/vitalnewsngr.com)
