Lagos pulls down distressed storey-building

The Lagos State government on Tuesday demolished a two-storey building located on Western Avenue.

The building, situated at Olaosun Close by Abati Barracks in Surulere, was said to have failed integrity test.

It was gathered that several fractures on the structure had prompted officials of the Lagos State Building Control Agency (LASBCA) to issue vacation notices to all tenants and sealed the premises.

According to the Director General of LASEMA, Dr. Femi Oke-Osanyintolu, the state demolished the building to avoid its collapse which could endanger lives and properties.

He said the government was aware of the danger such structures pose to residents especially as rainfall and wind storms get tougher.

Oke-Osanyintolu urged house owners to subject their buildings to integrity tests and ensure they take steps to effect recommended repairs when due.

On the effect of rainstorm at Iragon community, Badagry on Sunday, Oke-Osanyintolu said enumeration had commenced, adding that about 150 people are feared affected.

“No life was lost in the incident. The Commissioner two, of the Lagos State Civil Service Commission, Suru Avoseh said the wind storms affected over 100 buildings and left 150 people devastated.

“As a result of these claims, we have commended comprehensive enumeration of the entire affected community,” he said.
