50 Houses For Demolition In Lagos

Nigeria’s Lagos State Government has concluded plans to demolish 50 houses at the Jakande Estate, Ejigbo, a suburb of the commercial capital of Nigeria.
The 50 houses, (two and three storey buildings) failed the integrity test conducted on them by the Lagos State Raw Materials Testing Agency after a two-storey building collapsed in the estate in November 2012, killing two sisters.
The collapse of the two-storey building led the state government to conduct integrity test on several buildings in the estate built by ex-governor Lateef Jakande 30 years ago, through the Lagos Building Investment Corporation, LBIC.  The result of the test showed that 50 buildings were defective and needed to be demolished.
