Lagos Set To Demolish 57 Marked Old Buildings

     
As per reports; The Lagos State Building Control Agency, LASBCA on Monday began the demolition of 57 distressed buildings across the metropolis in a
move to stem the tide of collapsed buildings in the State.
Thirty-four of the buildings being demolished are on Lagos Island.


General Manager, LASBCA, Engr. Lekan Shodehinde said the demolition was under the first phase of the demolition of distressed buildings approved by Governor Akinwunmi Ambode.


Shodehinde said the buildings had been distressed overtime and that government had served owners of the structures notices.


He said the exercise was being carried out to stem tides of collapsed buildings in the State, saying that government would not fold its arm and allow buildings to collapse indiscriminately across the metropolis.


Shodehinde disclosed that the agency had identified 114 distressed buildings that needed to be demolished across the metropolis, adding that the others would be demolished during the second phase of the exercise.


Shodehinde explained that once a distressed building had been demolished by the government, the owner would be given 90 days to pay the demolition cost, failure for which government would seize the land.


The LASBCA General Manager stated that if after the test had been carried out and the property was found to be unsafe, it would be demolished.
