Building Collapse: Ogun State To Demolish ‘Structurally Defective Buildings’

Ogun state government says it will ensure that structurally defective buildings are demolished to forestall imminent collapse of buildings in the State.

The Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Mr Olatunji Odunlami stated this during an interview with newsmen in Abeokuta.

Mr Odunlami said his Ministry would continue to provide a regular audit of housing structures to safeguard buildings from constituting a menace to the society.

He pointed out that some buildings situated in Ijada area, off Olisa road  Ijebu- Ode, in Ijebu-Ode Local Government Area of Ogun State had been pulled down, due to the distressed state of the buildings.


According to the Commissioner, the demolished buildings are old mud structures that had outlived their lifespan, ill-maintained, and partly abandoned, with degenerated roofs and partially collapsed walls.

He advised landlords to ensure regular maintenance of their houses beyond collection of rent.
