A three-floor Vicarage belonging to Christ Anglican Church, at 60/64 Glover Street, Ebute-Metta, has been removed by the Lagos State Building Control Agency (LASBCA) due to its distressed state as well as to avert the danger that the building presently poses to its occupants and neighbours.

Although the leadership of the Church claimed that it had already commenced the process of removing the building, having sought permission to do so, LASBCA insisted on bringing down the distressed structure, which has been taken over by stagnant water, to avert imminent danger.

The General Manager of LASBCA, Gbolahan Oki, who spoke through the Director of Enforcement of the Agency, Olusoji Olaopa, noted that several other buildings within Ebute-Metta and its environs have been identified and marked for demolition during the ongoing exercise being carried out in phases.
