The Lagos state government has begun the demolition of 180 houses following the recent school building collapse.

According to Punch Metro, the Lagos State Building Control Agency, on Friday morning, commenced the demolition of defective buildings within Lagos Island.
 
About 180 houses will be demolished in the exercise, according to the General Manager of LASBCA, Mr Lekan Shodeinde.



 
He said 20 would be demolished on Friday.
 
The agency’s task force began with the demolition of a three-story building on 60A Freeman Street, Epetedo.


 
The demolition is coming on the heels of Wednesday building collapse on Massey Street, Ita Faaji, Lagos Island, which killed many pupils and injured others.
 
The agency said the property owners had been served several notices dating back to 2013.

What a pity,  that it requires such monumental tragedy before the Lagos State Civil Service could go on its arse.  The building that collapsed and took the lives of school pupils along with it,  was once marked for demolition.  By some abracadabra,  the building later took on a new paint,  and even had a penthouse  added to it.  With such a face lift,  how would an ordinary man know that the edifice is a glorified Bobby trap.

  it is this your type of advice that has supported Disaster Waiting to Happen.  What if some of the houses collapse on the tenants while they are searching for alternative accommodation.  Remember,  the Initial  Quit Notice was not just served last month.
