In furtherance of the ongoing efforts to control physical development and engender a livable and sustainable environment in the State, the Lagos State Government, on Thursday, sealed 19 additional buildings in the highbrow Banana Island, Ikoyi.

The figure brings the total number of property sealed in the axis for lack of building Permit and other infractions of the physical planning law to 34 since the commencement of the exercise on Wednesday.

The Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Dr. Idris Salako, who led the enforcement exercise, stated that the Government would not sit by and allow people to violate planning laws to the detriment of the wellness and wellbeing of the society through disorderly, unorganised, unapproved and illegal developments.

The Special Adviser to the Governor on Urban Development, Mr. Ganiyu Adele Ayuba cautioned developers to desist from breaking Government seals on the property that had been sealed for infractions as such illicit acts constitute an affront to the authorities and would be met with stiff penalties.

Ayuba also reiterated that the State Government would not tolerate any attack or obstruction of its officials while on lawful assignments.

The special enforcement activity, a joint exercise between the Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development, Lagos State Building Control Agency and the Special Operations Team in the Governor’s Office, continues next week.
