Lagos State Government Pulls Down Distressed Storey Building At Surulere

The Lagos State Government has pulled down a reportedly cracked two-storey building in Surulere area.

From report, the demolished structure had shown some visible cracks among other defects which led to the action taken by the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency(LASEMA).

The agency made it known that the structure has failed several “integrity tests” and hence the need for the demolition in other to ensure safety of lives of residents arose.

The Director-General of the LASEMA, Olufemi Oke-Osanyintolu, noted that residents of the apartment were duly taken out before the agency embarked on pulling down the structure last Monday.

He said: “A joint response team comprising the Agency’s officials, Lagos State Building Control Agency personnel and Ministry Of Physical Planning personnel, observed that a residential building was showing visible cracks and defects.

“The occupants of the building have been evacuated by the Agency’s officials. The building has subsequently failed the integrity testing and is undergoing a controlled demolition with LASEMA heavy-duty equipment, with a go-ahead from the Honorable Commissioner, Ministry of Physical Planning.”

Olufemi, challenged house owners in the state to ensure necessary corrective measures are taken on their properties to safeguard lives from avoidable tragedies.
