We’ll Demolish All Illegal Buildings – Lagos Govt

A continuation of the demolition of illegal buildings will kick off in 2024, this was the message conveyed to the press by the Lagos State Government through the Commissioner for Lagos State Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development, Dr Oluyinka Olumide.

Olumide, who spoke through the Director of Public Affairs (LASPPA), Abimbola Emdin-Umehin Lagos, disclosed that the state government will no longer tolerate illegality.

Olumide was speaking amid the resumption of the enforcement activities by Lagos State Physical Planning Permit Authority officials in the Ikeja area.

He expressed displeasure at the building under construction at Isaac John Street by Oba Dosunmu Street, GRA Ikeja, whose developer was granted a 6-floor mixed-use construction by the authority but allegedly illegally added two floors to the ongoing construction.

“The developer must meet all attached conditions for the property to be regularised or to remove the additional two floors illegally added before the building can be unsealed.

“The Lagos State Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development will work closely with relevant agencies to identify and penalise offenders.

“The government will not tolerate any violations of the laws and will take necessary actions against those who engage in illegal development activities.

“With the start of Y2024, the Lagos State Government is determined to crack down on unlawful development activities and ensure strict adherence to the physical planning permit laws, emphasising the importance of maintaining order and creating a safe and organised environment for all residents of Lagos”, he stated.

Meanwhile, many residents escaped death in Iseyin in the Oke Ogun geo-political zone of Oyo State when a truck rammed into houses in the town on Sunday afternoon.

It was gathered that the truck, carrying bags of cement, lost control which led to the incident.

Some shops in the area were also affected as properties worth millions of naira were destroyed.

The driver of the truck and his apprentice fled after the accident.

The whereabouts of the duo have not been revealed at the time of filing this report.
