The statement further noted that Oki disclosed this in the Ikeja office of the agency while condemning the increasing attack on officials of the agency on official duties.

He noted that no amount of intimidation or harassment will make the agency go back on its mandate in ensuring safe and secure buildings across the state.

He said, “These assailants not only obstruct our staff but also hold them hostage for hours, these acts of hooliganism will not deter us from carrying out our duties.

“Thankfully, we managed to overcome these attacks without any casualties. Our staff’s resilience and quick responses have played a crucial role in overpowering the assailants and preventing more severe consequences.”

In the statement, Oki called on the general public to support the agency in its mission to curb the menace of building collapses across the state.

It read, “Incidents of harassment and attacks tend to jeopardise the agency monitoring activities and can potentially pose significant threats to the public.

He urged the citizens to collaborate in ensuring the safety and integrity of structures that will foster a secure environment for all.

The PUNCH reports in December 2023, that the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, warned artisans to avoid building projects without the supervision of the Lagos State Building Control Agency to avoid building collapse.
