About 60 buildings have been marked for demolition in Akungba Akoko in the Akoko South-West Local Government Area of Ondo State following the flood that wreaked havoc on the community on Monday.

A student of the Adekunle Ajasin University, Doyinsola Boluwaji, was swept away by flood, which also affected several buildings.

The Chairman of the local government area, Dr Dapo Faseesin, said on Wednesday that all the buildings constructed by the drainage channels in the town would be demolished in the next one month in order to prevent the loss of lives to flood.

According to him, the occupants of the affected buildings will be given one month to vacate them and leave the area.

The affected buildings are located in the Medoline area of the town, where 500 students of the university reside. It was gathered that many of the buildings in the area had no solid foundation and were built beside the canal.

“We will give them one month notice after which the buildings will be demolished. We cannot allow further loss of lives,” Faseesin stated.

The monarch of Akungba Akoko, Oba Sunday Ajimo, said some people were distorting the original plan of the town because of the existence of the university, He expressed his delight over the planned action of the government to demolish the buildings along the waterway, saying it was a welcome development as it would prevent loss of lives.
