The Lagos State Government has issued a stop-work order on a petrol station allegedly constructed illegally at No.1 Robinson Gbagi/ Benson Anoruo Street, Ajao Estate, Isolo.

Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development Dr. Idris Salako told The Nation that the move to stop further construction on the site was important to forestall a disaster.

According to him, the facility is being erected without any approval or stage-by-stage inspection by the Lagos State Building Control Agency (LASBCA) to ascertain the quality of materials used.

“We cannot even be talking about checking for compliance against approval that was never given in the first place and this is dangerous for the built environment as the safety and structural integrity of the facility cannot be guaranteed,” Salako said.
