From the nation

*The whole of Lagos island is littered with 'dead' buildings waiting to collapse!


  1. Nice one!! bring them down,its better to cry now and relocate than cry later when there's no hope.

  2. Nice job! Please do extend action to Abraham Adesanya Estate, Ajah and jakande estate along Lekki-Epe Exp, as those buildings are defective.

  3. All these houses they are demolishing now, have the tenants made enough preparation to look for somewhere.

    While it is a welcome development, this demolishing came too early. Since friday they started. Wished the tenants monies to get a good place amen k

  4. They should check that island market very well too. So many dead buildings.

  5. Not only Lagos Island.

    Oyingbo and Apapa road too.

  6. Medicine after death. But it's good the buildings are demolished. It's not by force to live in Lagos. For those whose building has been demolished. The govt is only trying to save u from death trap.

  7. The developer who builds those houses is the problem in Lagos island. They undermine the cement they use and greed is their other name.
