Lagos to sanction owners of abandoned buildings

Lagos State govern­ment has warned owners of uncom­pleted and abandoned buildings in the state to ensure their immediate completion or face sanc­tions if such buildings were occupied by miscre­ants or used for unlawful acts.

Police Commissioner Fatai Owoseni stated this after a State Security Council meeting chaired by Governor Akinwunmi Ambode.
He said the meeting, which was more interest­ed in finding lasting solu­tion to the problems, also examined the security im­plication of uncompleted and abandoned buildings and increased illegal resi­dents of many uncom­pleted properties around estates in the state.
The CP, while warn­ing owners of abandoned buildings, said govern­ment has resolved to enforce existing laws to the letter, and ensure that miscreants who use such uncompleted buildings to perpetrate unlawful ac­tivities were brought to book.
He said some of such buildings which are usu­ally residential were often converted into lounges and clubs across the state
The commissioner reit­erated the determination of the police to continue to arrest miscreants while conscious efforts will be made to engage and educate owners of such properties that employ some of them as security guards and who are not conscious of the security risk they pose.
He added that some of the owners of such aban­doned properties were not aware that their proper­ties were often used as haven after the illegal oc­cupants must have com­mitted crimes since they only employ one secu­rity guard who within a month may bring many others into the premises
