The corpse of Femi Osibona, the developer of the 21-storey building that crumbled on Gerald road, Ikoyi, Lagos was recovered on Thursday, 4 November.
That was after emergency workers dug through the debris of the collapsed structure, owned by Osibona’s company, Fourscore Heights Limited.
Meanwhile, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has declared three days of mourning over the Ikoyi building collapse, which occurred on Monday, 1 November. No fewer than 32 persons are believed to have died in the incident.
All flags are to be flown at half-mast in public and private buildings and official engagements cancelled during the mourning period.
The Lagos State Government, once again, commiserates with all those who lost their loved ones in the unfortunate incident.
Governor Sanwo-Olu, as Gbenga Omoroso, Information Commissioner put it, has visited the site thrice to encourage the rescuers and console relations of those who are believed to have been trapped in the 21-storey building. He was today at the hospital to cheer up those injured before swearing in a six-man panel of Inquiry to find out why the building went down and recommend measures to prevent such incidents.
