    Ikoyi building: Sanwo-Olu gives condition for survivors’ discharge from hospital

    The Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has given conditions under which the survivors of the 21-storey building that collapsed on Monday on Gerrard Road, Ikoyi, would be discharged from the Lagos Island General Hospital, Marina.

    Sanwo-Olu during his visit to the hospital on Thursday stated that the survivors would only be discharged when the medical team gives an all-clear concerning their condition.

    The government had earlier revealed that six survivors were receiving treatment, while three had earlier been discharged.

    On his Instagram page on Thursday, the Governor shared pictures of his visit to the hospital.

    His caption read, “I visited the survivors of the building collapse this morning, and gave them my word that they will get the best of care in the hospital, and will not be discharged until they have been given the all-clear by the medical team attending to them.

    “As much as we sympathize with all concerned, we will also ensure that we are open and thorough in investigating the cause of the collapse.

    “In that regard, a high-powered professional investigative panel has been set up, whose membership consists of professionals outside of the Government. The panel, which is headed by the President of Nigeria Institute of Town Planners, Toyin Ayinde, has been given clear terms of reference, with a 30-day assignment to tell us what went wrong at the site.

    “The panel’s terms of reference also include ascertaining whether there was a compromise of the building codes by the developer, his contractor, and statutory regulatory agencies.”

    Sanwo-Olu, while addressing journalists at the site on Wednesday had unveiled the members of the six-man investigative panel, stating that a lawyer in a private law firm, Ekundayo Onajobi, would serve as the secretary.

    Other members of the panel are Akintilo Adeleke, Yinka Ogundairo, Godfrey Godfrey, and Bunmi Ibrahim.
