Lagos State Reopens Lekki Gardens

Lekki Gardens

The Lagos State government has approved the reopening of buildings belonging to Messrs Lekki Worldwide Estates Limited, owners of Lekki Gardens which were recently sealed after an uncompleted building collapsed at one of the construction sites belonging to the company.

According to a statement credited to Lagos State Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Mr Wasiu Anifowoshe, the buildings were unsealed and the tenants granted permission to return to their houses after results from the tests carried out were examined by a team of construction experts.

According to him, the integrity test carried out on the Lekki Gardens buildings was conducted by the Lagos State Material Testing Laboratory and the results have been forwarded to the Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, who reserves the right to announce the results. He also revealed that investigations are still on to ascertain the exact cause of the March 8 building collapse.

It would be recalled that on Tuesday March 8th, 2016 an uncompleted building collapsed at one of the construction sites belonging to Lekki Gardens and in the aftermath occupiers of all buildings erected by the company in Lagos State were evicted from their houses to allow the government ascertain their structural stability.
