Comrade Timi Frank, former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has alleged plot to sabotage investigations into the 21-storey building that collapsed last Monday at Gerrard Road, Ikoyi, Lagos State, killing over 30 people.
The Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, had set up a panel of inquiry chaired by the President of the National Institute of Town Planners, Toyin Ayinde to unravel the immediate and remote causes of the building collapse in Ikoyi.
Frank, in a statement, claimed that despite the setting up of a panel by the Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, he has credible information that the files containing relevant approvals and title deeds of the plot were now missing from the Lagos State Land Registry.
He said that some officials of the Lagos State Government were working behind the scenes in collaboration with the ‘true owners’ of the building to frustrate the probe panel.
He said the sole aim of frustrating the panel was to shield the ‘real owners’ of the building believed to be top government officials by blocking the panel’s access to relevant documents at the Lagos State Land Registry that could help to unravel the truth about the ownership and circumstances that led to the caving in of the edifice under construction.
He called on Governor Sanwo-Olu to provide urgent answers to the following questions: “Who gave approval for the premises to be reopened after it was sealed for four months last year due to observed anomalies by agents of the Lagos State Government?
“Who are those powerful forces from above that put pressure on the Lagos State government to reopen the premises for the continuation of work.
“Why was the General Manager of the Lagos State Building Control Agency (LASBCA), Gbolahan Oki, hastily suspended indefinitely following the collapse of the building without waiting for the penal duly constituted by the State Government to carry out its assignment and submit a report?
“Again, who are those that already bought up the apartments in the structure that was under construction?”
He insisted that Nigerians need to know the government officials who invested taxpayers’ money in the building and those who bought the apartments.
