The Lagos State Government says the Mandilas Building on Lagos Island, which was gutted by fire over the weekend, will remain shut indefinitely, pending the conclusion of a structural integrity test to ascertain its status before it is re-opened for public use.

This is according to the Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Oluyinka Olumide.

Recall that a raging fire gutted the popular 16-storey Mandilas Building, located on Broad Street, Lagos Island, destroying items and properties worth several millions of naira in the process.

Eyewitnesses say the incident occurred at about 1.15 pm and started from a warehouse on the first floor of the building before it spread to other floors. The cause of the fire has, so far, been attributed to technical fault.
