Presently, men of the agency’s task force are pulling down a four- storey building on 60A Freeman Street, Epetedo, area.

Today’s demolition exercise is not unconnected with the Tuesday incident around the same area, where a four floor building collapsed, killing over 10 pupils and leaving scores injured.
LABSCA sources told The Nation that the property owner had been served several notices dating back to 2013 before the demolition.
