Exposed! Why Ikoyi 21-storey building collapsed, killed, trapped many –  Blueprint Newspapers Limited

It was a black Monday in Lagos when a 21-storey building under construction collapsed killing many people while others were still trapped as of the time of filing this report.

 The multipurpose building is located on Gerald Road in the highbrow Ikoyi area of the state.

While the casualty number is yet to be ascertained as the emergency operation continued, four dead bodies have been removed from the debris as of last night while four were rescued alive. 

Sources said over 50 people were said to be trapped as emergency officials continued to comb the rubble.

 While the state has recorded a few incidents of collapsed buildings in recent times, yesterday’s incident was probably the most serious involving a 21-storey building being constructed for residential and commercial purposes. 

It was learnt that the building collapsed around 3 pm with a loud bang in the vicinity. The owner of the building was said to be in the building when the structure collapsed.

Sources said the owner drove to the construction site around noon in his bulletproof jeep and was supervising the project along with the project manager when the incident occurred.
