we won’t confiscate site just yet—lagos
the lagos state government has stated that it had no plan to confiscate the site of the collapsed building until investigation into its cause was concluded.
in a statement yesterday by the commissioner for physical planning and urban development, olutoyin ayinde, it said;
“government does not arbitrarily take over properties when investigation is still on-going. the state government is conducting a preliminary investigation into the cause(s) of the collapse and would leave no stone unturned. if there is any violation of relevant planning law, residents are assured that government would take appropriate action.”
he said that ‘there are no plans to take over the collapsed structure site until thorough and detailed investigation as to the cause(s) of the collapse has been concluded.
“a team of engineers from the ministry and other government agencies are taking samples from the foundation and materials from the wreckage of the building for detailed analysis and testing to ascertain the structural integrity of the building”.
on the “strange plane theory”, alleged to have dangerously flown low over the building minutes before its collapse, ayinde disclosed that the ministry had submitted the video clips, as provided by the church to the nigerian civil aviation authority (ncaa) with the co-ordinate of the collapsed site for investigation and professional comment.
