In a bid to ensure the safety and well-being of its residents, the Lagos State Building Control Agency (LASBCA) has been entrusted with the crucial task of removing all buildings situated beneath high tension transmission lines across the state.
Recognizing the potential dangers associated with such locations, LASBCA is making an impassioned plea to the owners and occupants of these structures to evacuate without delay. The agency has taken proactive measures to serve statutory notices to some of the individuals affected, as the removal process is set to begin imminently.
Some of the identified areas include Cappa, Fatai Atere, Ijesa, Mechanic Village in Egbeda, Itamaga/Ifesowapo Mechanism Village in Ikorodu, Ojekunle Street in Mushin, Animasahun, Itire Ikate, and Aguda Timber Market in Surulere, among others. These locations, unfortunately, find themselves in close proximity to high tension transmission lines, posing a significant risk to the safety and well-being of the individuals residing or conducting business within these structures.
LASBCA recognizes the gravity of the situation and emphasizes the urgency of vacating these premises. With the imminent commencement of the removal process, the agency urges owners and occupants to prioritize their safety and that of their loved ones by relocating to safer areas.
High tension transmission lines carry an enormous amount of electrical current, and any unfortunate incident could lead to potentially catastrophic consequences.
As a responsible governing body, LASBCA is committed to ensuring compliance with safety regulations and guidelines. Buildings located under high tension transmission lines are particularly vulnerable to hazards such as electrical accidents, fires, and structural damage.
By issuing the statutory notices to the owners and occupants of the identified structures, LASBCA aims to raise awareness about the imminent risks.
LASBCA is not undertaking this endeavor alone; it seeks the collaboration and cooperation of the affected individuals. The agency understands the potential disruption and inconvenience associated with relocation but emphasizes that the safety and well-being of the residents must be the top priority.
