…Levels another under construction in the area
The Lagos State Building Control Agency (LASBCA) has pulled down the remains of a three-floor structure that partially collapsed along Chris Ngadi Avenue, Ago Palace Way, Okota.
The Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Dr. Idris Salako, stated that a detailed investigation into the remote and immediate causes of the collapse has been ordered.
He noted, however, that a cursory report of the collapse suggested that a section of the building gave way due to overdensity.
Salako noted that no life was lost even though the building was in use while the site had been cordoned off to guarantee safety.
The commissioner further pointed out that another structure under construction on the same street was completely pulled down by LASBCA for poor construction, the use of inferior materials and in order to avert danger.
This comes exactly one week after the three storey building crumble in Ebute Metta area of the state, killing 10 persons and leaving others injured
