Lagos Orders Arrests Of Collapsed Building Developer

The Lagos State Government says it has ordered the arrest of the developer and building professionals working on the seventh-floor structure that collapsed in the early hours on Sunday.

A statement by Mr Mukaila Sanusi, spokesperson, Lagos State Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development, said the building, under construction, was located at Oba Abiodun Oniru road, Iru/Victoria Island area.

Salako said that the developer and professionals were liable because they did not regard the planning laws of the state.

He said that under no circumstances should anyone construe the filling of application for a permit through the Lagos State Physical Planning Permit Authority as a ticket to start construction.

“This will ensure that construction works are carried out in conformity with the approval granted”.

He expressed worry over the increasing disregard for law and order by actors in the built environment, adding that the government was determined to restore sanity and orderliness to the sector.

Salako urged Lagos residents to join hands with the government to maintain vigilance in the built environment by reporting any illegal developments in their vicinity.

He added that infractions should be reported through any ministry or state government communication channels, particularly the Lagos State Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development APP and LASBCA.
