The Governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Dapo Ambode, says the school that collapsed at Ita-Faji, Lagos Island yesterday March 13th, was an illegal school.
While paying a visit to the scene of the incident, Ambode said the schools and shops in the collapsed building were unauthorised and were ”illegally” operating in the building, which was primarily meant for residential purposes. Ambode also added that many of the buildings in the area would face demolition as they are not structurally okay.
“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.
