Government Suspends Development Plans On Banana Island

The Lagos state government has suspended all development plans on Banana Island after the collapse of a seven-storey building under construction on First Avenue

Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso, disclosed in a statement on Thursday that this halt was subject to a comprehensive audit by the officials of the Lagos State Building Control Agency (LASBCA)

He also revealed that the audit will help the state government determine the number of buildings being constructed without proper approval as well as verify if approved buildings are being built in line with the approval limits provided.

“This exercise will be extended to other estates and gated communities,” the document also read in part.

Nobody died in the incident, which occurred on Wednesday – as of the time of this report. Twenty-five people were rescued from the site, which Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) scanned with a high-precision 3-D Laser Imagery System for life, and found no evidence of anyone trapped in the rubble
