Lagos demolishes 13 buildings

Five more structurally defective Lagos island buildings have been brought down by the Lagos state government.

This brings the number of demolished buildings to 13 since the Lagos State Building Control Agency (LASBCA) started the exercise to prevent another disaster after the incident in, Ita-Faji, Lagos Island.

Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development Prince Rotimi Ogunleye described the exercise as a holistic response to the challenges posed by derelict structures and unapproved schools.

LASBCA Acting General Manager Tayo Fakuloju and Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development Permanent Secretary Mrs Boladele Dapo-Thomas led the team that carried out the demolition.
