Lagos state Governor, Akinwumi Ambode, has given a directive to all landlords who own uncompleted buildings in Lagos state, to either complete these buildings or face the wrath of the law. Governor Ambode, said this action had to be taken due to the fact that miscreants and hoodlums occupy such building causing all sorts of social vices.
Briefing Government House Correspondents after the State Security Council meeting, Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Fatai Owoseni, said;
“We’ve looked at areas where we are winning, areas where we need to make more efforts and especially at the security implication of the influx of people into Lagos State in large numbers, the security implication of so many houses, uncompleted and abandoned buildings and the increase in the number of people that are getting into so many estates in Lagos”
Mr. Owoseni further said, that they have reached out to all landlords to either take immediate actions in other to reduce crime or face the law.
The Governor also tweeted the news via his official twitter handle;
Owners of uncompleted and abandoned buildings in Lagos should complete them or face the law, as they are being used as hideout by miscreants
