Revealed: See What Really Caused The Collapse Of Lekki Gardens Building

The Nigerian Institute of Building has revealed that Lekki Gardens, owners of the collapsed Lekki building which has left about 26 people dead, unprofessionally added the last two floors of the building.

The vice chairman of the institute, Adelaja Adekanbi revealed to TheCable that:

“All the work that has been done here is nothing to write home about; it’s work that was done under no supervision, under no professional engineer or builder,” he said. “Let them bring the engineer or builder that is involved in the construction. The first two building here, I was involved in it; I taught them what to do. They wanted to raise two floors and they did a piling of six metres for this kind of structure so the structural stability is failure and where we are standing, if you don’t know, was purely water two years ago.

“Imagine someone building on water and doing a piling of six metres for a seven-storeyed building. I recommend to Lagos state government that every building here painted or not, should be tested. “This house we are looking at should also be pulled down in a week. If not, we are looking for another trouble. At this point, I recommend that every house here should be tested to ascertain the structural stability because I don’t think they are habitable.”
