The Lagos state government (LASG) has reiterated its commitment to taking legal action against individuals found erecting buildings without proper authorization, including the dismantling of any such structures.
The Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, DOluyinka Olumide, stated this during a routine inspection of the built environment along the Lekki/Ajah corridor.
The commissioner oversaw the sealing and partial removal of certain non-compliant structures in various locations along the corridor.
He issued a stern warning to the owners and developers of structures located beneath the power lines, giving them two weeks to vacate the premises, saying that no structures are allowed under the power lines, which should be reserved solely for the open display of goods and services.
While lamenting the widespread contempt for physical planning regulations across the state, he vowed that no sacred cows would be sacrificed in the application of the law to the benefit of a living and sustainable built environment.
To escape the wrath of the law, he advised property owners and developers to get planning licenses before beginning work and to adhere to the terms of their permissions.
