He said the demolition of the structures would minimally impact the buildings and persons living close to the site.
Bamgbose-Martins, however, sought the support of residents for a successful completion of the demolition, maintaining that the three buildings pose dangers to those living within the area, reason to pull them down.

Also speaking, the Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Dr. Idris Salako, said the site would be handed over to the consultant that would pulled down the buildings to take full charge of the location.

Managing Director, Edge of Design, Mr. Theophilus Lewo, whose company had been contracted for the exercise, said the company would be deconstructing the buildings and not demolition.
