Police arrest Lekki collapsed building contractor

The Police in Lagos have arrested the contractor who is handling the collapsed five story building in Lekki area of the state.

The State Police Spokesperson, SP Oladapo Badmus, disclosed this to News agency of Nigeria, NAN, in Lagos.

Badmus who gave the name of the contractor as Odofin Taiwo added that the matter is currently under investigation.

In a related development, the Standard Organisation, SON, led by its Director, Inspectorate and Complaint, Mr Bede Obayi, inspected the collapsed buildingand others under construction in the area.

Obayi ordered for the collection of the different building materials used for the collapsed building, including iron rods, blocks, sand, granites and sea water for laboratory analysis.

“The first thing in a house is the block, from the ones we have examined here, it has failed the test.

“The construction of this building is not up to 50 meters from the sea, showing that this land was reclaimed from the sea.

“There are conditions for reclaiming a land from the sea and the kind of building materials to be used in such lands.

“We have to examine all the materials used for this building and see if they meet the condition,’’ he told NAN.

“You need to also see that the right professionals handled the building project. If you use the best materials without the right professionals handlingthe materials, things will still go wrong.

“You must be a registered professional engineer for you to handle this type of project.

“If you want to build, you must look for a professional. We are going to investigate all the structures and materials in this environment,’’ Obayi said.
