Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has inaugurated the panel of independent experts that will probe the Ikoyi building collapse.
Sanwo-Olu said structural integrity tests will begin on the two other structures from today.
Sanwo-Olu reiterated the need for rescue workers to be safe on site, saying the structural integrity of the other buildings must be ascertained.
The Governor said he visited the six survivors on admission at the Lagos Island General Hospital. He said one of them was transferred to the Lagos State University Teaching (LASUTH) in Ikeja, for further treatment and that the other five are in good spirit.
Sanwo said: “I have been to the Island General Hospital to encourage the living. I listened to their experiences on how God saved their lives. Life is something we all need to cherish because we can lose it at the shortest possible time.
“Six of them, but one was moved this morning to LASUTH for additional investigative treatment because of the specialist healthcare we have there.
“Yesterday, we opened the register for missing persons so that people who have missing loved ones whom they believe or imagine must have been in this location on Monday, and for whatever reason they haven’t contacted them, can provide their details. As I speak now, only 19 names have been provided, some with pictures and some without.
“This will help us to begin to design the possibilities of a manifest coming out from the responses we have so far.”
