Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has ordered the demolition of three two-storey buildings in Banana Island following the collapse of a seven-storey building in the area.

During his visit to the site of the collapsed building, Mr Sanwo-Olu ordered the removal of a two-storey building at 310 Close because it was an illegal structure without approval.

He also ordered the removal of two two-storey buildings at 306 Close because they were constructed under the powerline and under water.

The governor blamed the collapse on the irresponsibility of the developers and some citizens who wanted to make quick money.

He also blamed the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing and the National Inland Waterways Authority (NIWA) for granting an extension of the line of Banana Island.

According to the governor, the incident showed that Lagos State building officers are not alive to their responsibilities, and officers found culpable will also be sanctioned.

To ascertain what went wrong, an external seven-member committee has been set up with a two-week mandate to independently investigate the incident.

The outcome of the committee’s findings will further strengthen the government to develop a robust work plan that can be enforced going forward.

Mr Sanwo-Olu said the incident was a reminder of the need for strict adherence to building codes and regulations.

He said the government would not tolerate any act of negligence or non-compliance with building laws, adding that the safety of residents was of utmost importance.

The governor also ordered the stoppage of work at all construction sites in Banana Island until a thorough inspection had been carried out to ensure that all structures are safe and comply with building laws and regulations.

He called on residents to report any illegal construction to the relevant authorities.
