#ItaFaaji: Governor Ambode Reveals That The School In The Collapsed Building Was Operating Illegally

Lagosians were thrown into a frenzy after a building in Itafaaji in Lagos Island collapsed. The governor of the state, Akinwunmi Ambode has revealed that the school in the collapsed building was not approved to operate in that building. He said this while visiting the incident site yesterday, March 13th where he said that the school and shops in the three-story building, were not authorized and were operating “illegally” in the building, which is meant solely for residential purposes. He also shared that many structures in the area would be demolished as they are not structurally fit. He said: “The building is not technically a school, it is a residential building that was actually accommodating an illegal school, so to speak, on the second floor,” he said.Photo Credit: Getty
