It appears that the owner and about 24 artisans were inside the collapsed Ikoyi building when it carved in.

An eye witness told journalists that the developer and all the workers, including the owner of the building were trapped under the rubbles after the structure under construction collapsed.

The eye witness said that the property owner was at the site inspecting the structure along Gerrard road at Musiliu junction, when the building caved at about 2:30 pm, with many trapped under the structure.

Before the structure caved in on Monday, the property owner had been preventing officials of the Lagos State Building Control Agency (LASBCA) and other building regulatory agencies from gaining access into the structure

Confirming the incident, the General Manager of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), Dr. Olufemi Oke-Osanyintolu, disclosed that he has activated the agency’s emergency response plan to the incident.

Oke-Osanyintolu explained that all first responders were enroute to secure the scene while the heavy duty equipment and life detection equipment had been dispatched.
