‘Weeklong demolition’ Sanwo-Olu cracks down on distressed buildings across Lagos

The Lagos State Government has announced that it would embark on a weeklong demolition of distressed buildings in Ebute Metta and other parts of the state.

The proposed exercise by the state government is to prevent the various cases of building collapse in the state as well as safeguard lives and property.

According to NAN, Sanusi quoted the commissioner as assuring that only identified defective buildings in the state would be taken down.
Exercise to focus on marked distress building


Salako said the exercise would focus on structures already marked as distressed by the Lagos State Building Control Agency (LASBCA), particularly in Ebute-Metta East where an occupied building collapsed a week ago with many others vividly showing distress signs.

The commissioner was quoted as saying that the most ideal and sensible thing to do was to promptly demolish those earlier identified critically distressed structures to avert disaster during the rainy season.

He said that this would be done simultaneously with the assessment of structures in the area and other parts of the state continued.

He said, “The administration of Babajide Sanwo-Olu is committed to ensuring the security of lives and property.

“This underlies our resolve to act promptly in addressing the spate of building collapse by removing uninhabitable structures before they cause more havoc, especially during the rainy season when such buildings are more prone to collapse.’’
