The GMs, Lagos State Parks and Gardens Agency (LASPARK) and Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency (LASEPA), Bilikiss Adebiyi Abiola and Dr. Dolapo Fasawe respectively, made this known during a press briefing where they said the action became imperative as a deterrent to property owners contravening the State Greening Law.

The enforcement, according to them, was at instance of Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu after the property owner refused to comply with the abatement notice earlier served on him by LASPARK.

Abiola said: “This building was sealed off for infringing on the established law after the owner cut down trees without approval by the government. This act contravenes the Greening Law and as such attracts legal action.”
