The General Manager of the Lagos State Building Control Agency (LASBCA), Arc. Gbolahan Oki, has called for collaboration between the agency and the Lagos State Police Command for effective monitoring and enforcement for conformity in the state.
Oki made the call during his courtesy visit to the Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, Mr. Hakeem Odumosu at the Police Command, GRA, Ikeja.
According to the General Manager, who was in the company of management staff of the agency, it had become necessary to synergise with the Police Command, especially in violent prone areas, in order to adequately carry out the assignment and responsibilities of the agency.
Oki said officials of the agency were often attacked by hoodlums, sometimes sponsored by recalcitrant developers/owners, while carrying out their lawful duties, adding that “if not properly addressed it would affect the services provided by the agency”.

While thanking the Command for its continued support in the past, the General Manager reiterated that there was an urgent need to enhance the existing relationship between the two organisations towards achieving the set goals and objectives of the state government.
On his part, the Commissioner of Police, Mr. Hakeem Odumosu, said the primary responsibility of the government was to ensure the security of lives and property of her citizenry, adding that the Command has constantly risen to defend that constitutional responsibility.
The Commissioner of Police urged officials of the agency not to relax in their duties but always ensure that they carry out due diligence before embarking on any enforcement drive.
He, however, assured the agency of the Command’s full support in the deployment of policemen for protection during the enforcement exercises.
