Ikoyi building collapse: Building plan was not properly scrutinized – Ufeli


The corona inquest has revealed that the 21-storey building on Gerard Road, Ikoyi, Lagos State collapsed due to negligence by regulatory agencies responsible for the approval and supervision of the building project.

This was made known on Tuesday by the Corona, Chief Magistrate O.A. Komolafe, at a sitting in Lagos.

Komolafe pointed out that the building’s density and setback on the site showed gross violation of the Lagos State Building Regulations.

Also in his submission, the corona said that the project board which should have boldly shown the sensitive and important information, including the names and addresses of the professionals who carried out the project, was deliberately not provided.

To speak more on the development, Evans Ufelli, public affairs analyst and legal practitioner, joins me now, thank you very much for joining us.
