The Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu who again visited the site of the 21 storey collapsed Ikoyi building today Wednesday where 21 people have been confirmed dead and still counting has listed the names and ages of the survivors found under the rubble.
The governor noted that six of the survivors are still receiving treatment at the hospital, while three others have been discharged.
Below is the list of survivors of the Ikoyi building collapse:
1. Odutan Timileyin is a 26-year-old man.
2. Ahmed Kenleku: A 19-year-old man from Cotonou, the Benin Republic.
3. Sunday Monday: The 21-year-old had a leg fracture.
4. Adeniran Mayowa: This survivor, the governor noted, suffered a hip injury.
5. Shola Bade Nurudeen: He is 33 and had a pelvic injury.
6. Waliu Lateef is 32-year-old.
Sanwo-Olu, who described the incident where over 20 persons have died so far as a national disaster, said: “mistakes were made from all angles.”
“This is an event that could be described clearly as a national disaster. Mistakes were made from all angles,” he said, adding that such an event “really should not be happening in a modern-day city like Lagos.”
He also condoled the families and loved ones of victims of the building collapse, assuring that there will be a probe into the matter.
Recall that the governor had suspended the General Manager of the Lagos State Building Control Agency (LASBCA), Gbolahan Oki for complacency and negligence.
“You can rest assured that if they are other people that are found in the course of the investigation, they will face the full wrath of the law,” the governor added during the visit to the building collapse site.
According to him, there was no manifest to indicate those who were on the building site, a development he said is hindering rescue efforts.
