It was also gathered that the action of the FCTA officials in the DAAR Communications premises has caused panic among workers and residents of the area.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that in a bid to stem recurrence of building collapse in the state, the Lagos State Building Control Agency (LASBCA) has said it has pulled down 30 out of 80 distressed buildings marked for demolition in Lagos Island.

General manager of LASBCA, Olalekan Shodehinde, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on Wednesday, April 10, that the demolition would come in phases because some of the buildings were subject of litigation.
