The Lagos State Government has continued its enforcement against illegal construction in Banana Island by re-sealing 12 buildings where previous seals were removed. The government also demolished fences on new project sites encroaching on waterways and other parts of the estate, including some that were toked from previous enforcements.
Toking is a process of partial demolition to compel compliance.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the General Manager of the Lagos State Building Control Agency (LASBCA), Mr. Gbolahan Oki, who led the enforcement team, was accompanied by directors and other senior officials of LASBCA, the Lagos State Physical Planning Permit Authority and the Lagos State Taskforce.
While enforcing compliance, the GM told some residents that he was sealing buildings that were without approvals and others built beyond approved setbacks. He advised some residents to go for regularisation, and others to visit LASBCA and sister agencies for requisite approvals.
