Residents of Omole Estate Phase II have accused officials of the Lagos State Building Control Agency of beating up the estates security guards.
Our correspondent gathered from the residents that the estate security guards denied the LASBCA officials access to the estate over their failure to properly identify themselves on Monday.
The residents said the guards resisted and were subsequently attacked by the officials.
Speaking with our correspondent on Wednesday, the Chief Security Officer of the estate, Prince Adewunmi Stephen, explained that the LASBAC officials were not allowed inside because they came with a private car and did not provide their identity cards to authenticate their claims.
He noted that not coming with a branded vehicle or plate number of the Lagos State Government was against the estates rule for government officials.
Adewunmi added that three of his men were injured by the officials during the incident.
