The Lagos State Government has accepted 26 recommendations of the Toyin-Ayinde-led panel that investigated the collapse of a 21-storey building in the Ikoyi area of the state.
Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s administration also rejected two of the 28 recommendations of the panel.
The government, in a white paper, agreed with the recommendation of the panel that the existing two 15-storey buildings still standing at the site of the collapse on Gerrard Road in Ikoyi should be demolished and the land forfeited to the government, Punch reported.
The government also accepted the recommendation of the panel that the developer of the collapsed property, Fourscore Heights Limited, be prosecuted because of the loss of lives at the rubble.
The 21-storey building which was located on Gerrard Road in Ikoyi collapsed on November 1, 2021.
Still standing beside the collapsed high-rise are two uncompleted 15-storey buildings.
The collapsed 21-floor skyscraper trapped over 50 persons, including the firm’s Managing Director, Femi Osibona; his friend, a United States of America-based Nigerian businessman, Wale Bob-Oseni; his personal assistant, Oyinye Enekwe; clients and labourers.
About 44 persons were said to have died as a result of the incident, nine survivors were rescued from the rubble of the collapsed building, while some artisans working in the building before it collapsed are still missing.
