The five-story building flattened by fire discharge at Balogun Market in Lagos Island has been annihilated. The destruction started after firemen totally put out the fire on Wednesday morning.

This demolition follows the directive given by Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu during his earlier visit to the scene. Structures beside the detected building will also undergo integrity test to determine their fitness and to ascertain if they will be demolished as well.

Makeshift shops close to the affected buildings have also be sealed by government agency to allow smooth operation by the government agencies.
