Ikoyi Building: Death Toll Rises To 36


⁣The 21-storey structure located on Gerrard Road in highbrow Ikoyi, gave way on Monday, November 1, 2021, at around 2pm.⁣

At the moment, 36 people have now been confirmed dead, 3 are women and 33 are men.⁣

It is believed that most of the victims are construction workers.⁣ Rescue operations are ongoing, four days after.⁣

The developer of the property is believed to be among those trapped beneath the wreckage.⁣

On Wednesday, November 3, Lagos Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu announced that there have been 9 survivors.⁣

The Lagos State Government has also set up an information desk outside the collapsed property.⁣

Friends and families of loved ones who were in the property when it collapsed, would subsequently be directed to a morgue where they can identify their loved ones for burial and closure.⁣

Governor Sanwo-Olu has suspended the General Manager of the Lagos State Building Control Agency (LASBCA), Mr. Gbolahan Oki, and a panel has been set up to investigate circumstances that led to the building’s collapse.⁣

The governor has admitted that mistakes were made on all sides.⁣ Building collapse incidents are commonplace in densely populated and chaotic Lagos.⁣
