Mr. Babajide Odekunle, General Manager of the Lagos State Infrastructure Maintenance and Regulatory Agency (LASIMRA), has constituted a zero-tolerance Task Force to comb the length and breadth of Lagos Island and identify all illegal and non-compliant rooftop masts or those that could compromise the structural integrity of buildings on which they are installed.

Odekunle explained that the move was a fall out from the collapsed building with an illegal and unapproved roof-top mast on Massey Street, Lagos Island last week, saying the exercise became highly necessary to protect lives and property of Lagosians.

He affirmed that any non-compliant rooftop mast and those erected on perceived defective buildings with suspicious structural integrity would be removed, adding that the appropriate government agency would take further action on identified defective buildings.

The General Manager reiterated the commitment of the present administration to ensuring the safety of lives and property of all residents of the State.
