Victims of collapsed and demolished buildings on Lagos Island are to be resettled at the State Relief/Resettlement Centre, Igando in Alimosho Local Government Area.
Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Kehinde Bamigbetan disclosed this during a tour of the Resettlement Centre in Igando at the weekend, stating that Governor Akinwumi Ambode has approved that those affected as a result of the ongoing demolition of defective buildings be resettled at the Relief Centre in line with international best practices.
He added that the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency’s Resettlement Camp/Relief Centre is ready to accommodate no fewer than 500 displaced persons from Tuesday March 26, 2019.
“The exercise is part of the state government’s efforts to ensure that the effect of loss on the victims is mitigated to the barest minimum.
“The Igando Resettlement Camp has facilities to provide relief for affected victims, including those living with disabilities,” the commissioner said.
