The agency’s task force started the demolition with a three-storey building on 60A Freeman Street, Epetedo.

The exercise is believed to have been informed by the Wednesday building collapse on Massey Street, Ita Faaji, Lagos Island, which killed many pupils and injured others.

The agency lamented that the collapsed property owners had been served several notices dating back to 2013.
