…Flags To Fly At Half-mast
Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has declared three days of mourning over the Ikoyi building collapse, which occurred on Monday.
No fewer than 32 persons are believed to have died in the incident.
This was made known on Thursday by the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Gbenga Omotoso in a statement.
The commissioner noted that the governor has directed that all flags should be flown at half-mast in public and private buildings while official engagements have been 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 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,” the statement said.
