Lagos halts construction work at banana Island

The Lagos state government has suspended all development plans on Banana Island after the collapse of a seven-storey building under construction on First Avenue.

This was disclosed in a statement by the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso, on Thursday April 13, 2023 that the halt was subject to a comprehensive audit by the officials of the Lagos State Building Control Agency (LASBCA).

“Governor has directed that all developments on Banana Island be placed on hold, subject to a comprehensive audit by the officials of the Lagos State Building Control Agency (LASBCA).

“This is to determine how many buildings are being constructed without approval from the Lagos State Government; and if all approved buildings are being built in line with the approval limits provided.

“This exercise will be extended to other estates and gated communities,” he said.
