Lagos seals 34 Banana Island properties over building permits


The Lagos State Government sealed up 34 buildings under construction on Banana Island, Ikoyi, over claim that they have no building permit, according to

The paper said the affected buildings were shut on Wednesday in an exercise that is on-going.

“The exercise continues tomorrow (today). We are not targeting any particular houses. The more we see (without permit), the more we seal. It is not as if we had anybody in mind. We just asked them to show their approval but it is unfortunate we could get that number. It is not limited to Banana Island alone; it is a statewide enforcement programme but we are starting from that area,” the paper quoted the Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Dr Idris Salako, as saying.
