The State Government has demolished an illegal structure on unauthorised reclaimed land in Banana Island.
Commissioner for Physical Planning, Olumide Oluyinka, who was accompanied by the General Manager, Lagos State Building Control Agency, LASBCA, Gbolahan Oki, said the demolished structure violated a suspension order issued by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu during his assessment visit to the site earlier in the year.
Olumide, who decried the rate at which property owners and developers disregarded building code, warned against illegal reclamation of land in the state.
He stressed that individuals did not have the right to reclaim without requisite permission from the ministry charged with that responsibility.
On his part, the General Manager of Lagos State Building Control Agency, LABSCA, Gbolahan Oki, urged all intending building owners to always ensure due diligence before construction by obtaining the necessary documentations from relevant agencies of the government.
