More buildings sealed on Banana Island by Lagos Government
Lagos State Government has sealed more buildings on Banana Island, Ikoyi, over lack of building permits.
The state Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development on Friday said it sealed 19 more buildings.
The offences of the owners, he said, included lack of building permits and other violations of the state’s physical planning law.
“Government would not sit by and allow people violate planning laws to the detriment of the wellness and well-being of the society”, Salako said.
Also speaking, Special Adviser to the Governor on Urban Development, Mr Ganiyu Ayuba, warned developers to stop removing government seals from already sealed buildings.
According to him, such illicit acts could be interpreted as affront to the authorities and would attract stiff penalties.
