Yesterday the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-olu visited the collapsed 21 storey building in Ikoyi, Lagos.
The governor took to his Instagram page to share some photos from the scene of his visit.
He wrote while sharing these photos on his Instagram page.
I visited the site of the collapsed building on Gerrard Road, Ikoyi to inspect the level and progress of work being done in the ongoing rescue operations.
I expressed my appreciation to the first responders and all who have joined the rescue efforts. A help desk has been set up at the site for people seeking information about their relations who may have been involved in the unfortunate incident.
My sincere condolences goes to the families who have lost loved ones. May the souls of the departed Rest In Peace. I also appeal to families and loved ones of those still missing to please be patient as the rescue workers work tirelessly to make sure everyone still under the rubbles is rescued.
An independent panel to probe and investigate the remote and immediate causes of the incident and to also make recommendations on how to prevent future occurrence will be set up.
We will get to the root of how it all went wrong, and we will leave no stone unturned in making sure this does not happen again.
There will be absolutely no cover-ups in the search for truth in this incident. If anyone is indicted, they will definitely face the full wrath of the law.
