    The Lagos State Tribunal Inquiry into the collapse of a 21-storey building in the Ikoyi area of the state has said the results of the tests conducted on the construction materials are still being awaited.

The results of the tests on the construction materials are still being awaited.”

    Ayinde added that the panel has conducted interviews with several eyewitnesses and stakeholders and would update the public on its proceedings.

    “The interviews conducted have been recorded for the purpose of record-keeping, and the tribunal would meet as many as are willing to present credible and factual statements, with evidence(s), relating to the collapse.

    “The tribunal’s mode of communication would be to brief the media through press releases as and when required, so that the public may be aware of the conduct of the proceedings.

    The tribunal which comprises six professionals in the private sector was set up by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and began sitting immediately after its inauguration on Thursday, November 4, 2021.
