The General Manager, Lagos State Building Control Agency, Gbolahan Oki, has revealed that officials of the agency were attacked with weapons and charms/Voodoo while on routine monitoring exercise along Musical Village, Awolowo Road, in the Ikorodu area of the state.
This was revealed in a statement on the Facebook page of LASBCA on Thursday, Jan. 4.
According to the statement, the assailant has been handed over to security operatives for prosecution.
Oki said, “These assailants not only obstruct our staff but also hold them hostage for hours, these acts of hooliganism will not deter us from carrying out our duties.

In the statement, Oki called on the general public to support the agency in its mission to curb the menace of building collapses across the state.
