According to the General Manager of LASBCA, Arc. Gbolahan Owodunni Oki, these attachments had been converted from residential to commercial usage without proper authorization, reflecting a growing trend in the state’s construction sector.

Unlawful Conversion of Residential Units

Upon investigation, LASBCA found that certain parts of the residential units in Divine Homes Estate, including boys’ quarters and other sections, had been unlawfully transformed into shops and utilized for various commercial activities.

This disregard for physical planning regulations and building codes poses a significant threat to the estate’s original plan as a residential area.

Prior Notifications and Non-Compliance

Before the removal of the illegal attachments, the owners were served with Statutory Notices such as Contravention, Quit, and Demolition Notices.

These notifications were issued after the owners failed to revert to the original building plan approval granted by the government.

Government’s Commitment to Safety and Compliance

The General Manager reiterated the government’s commitment to protecting the lives and properties of the residents.

This collaboration will play a crucial role in upholding building regulations, promoting safety, and preserving the unique character of each neighborhood throughout the state.

Conclusion:

LASBCA’s recent action to remove illegal attachments in Divine Homes Estate serves as a reminder of the agency’s commitment to enforcing building regulations and preserving the integrity of residential areas.

The agency remains focused on its mission to ensure a well-planned and safe environment for the citizens of Lagos State.
