It has been confirmed that the owner of the collapsed 21-storey building under construction in Ikoyi was given the approval to construct 15 floors, and not 21. This is coming from the Lagos State Building Control Agency (LASBCA).

“He got approval for a 15-storey building and he exceeded his limit… He got approval for 15 floors but built 21,” said LASBCA General Manager, Gbolahan Oki.

On the progress made with the rescue operation, Mr Oki said, four people were rescued alive and three people died, adding that rescue efforts were still ongoing.

“We are still here and have four machines working as at this moment,” he added.

Asked about the owner of the property and what would happen to him, the LASBCA chief said, “I think he has been locked down. He has been arrested before now.”

At least 50 people were reported trapped under the rubble after the 21-storey building located at 20, Gerrard Road in Ikoyi, Lagos, collapsed on Monday.
