Agency: LASG shuts two churches, 17 houses in Ikorodu

The Lagos State Building Control Agency has shut 19 buildings in Igbogbo Baiyeku, in the Ikorodu area for alleged violation of the town planning laws of the state.

The General Manager of the agency, Abiola Kosegbe, was said to have led the enforcement team of LASBCA on the operation.

Two churches owned by the Redeemed Christian Church of God and the Cherubim and Seraphim Church on Bamgbose Street were among the affected buildings.

According to a statement on Sunday, eight other buildings were shut because their owners did not have permits, among other required documents.

Kosegbe stated that the team embarked on the operation to let residents know that they must build right in view of incessant building collapse in some parts of the state.

She said any developer that did not notify government about development of their structure could be arrested.

The LASBCA boss said most of the properties sealed had already been served abatement notices, adding that the agency also engaged in post-construction audit, where those who had already completed their buildings were asked to present documents to ascertain if they got the needed permits to erect such structures.

The Chairman of Igbogbo Baiyeku Local Council Development Area, Olusesan Daini, who was said to have participated in the enforcement, noted that the exercise was to save lives. Punch
