The Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has arrived the scene of the 21-storey building that collapsed on Monday on Gerrard Road, in the Ikoyi area of the state.

Sanwo-Olu had visited the site of the incident earlier today at about 1 am, reports indicate.

On Tuesday, Sanwo-Olu had ordered the suspension of the General Manager of the Lagos State Building Control Agency, LASBCA, Gbolahan Oki.

The building was still under construction when it crumbled.

Rescuers said Wednesday they had recovered 22 dead bodies so far and rescued nine people who survived, but construction workers feared dozens of their colleagues were trapped inside.

“We recovered two male bodies early this morning, bringing the toll to 22,” said Ibrahim Farinloye of the National Emergency Management Agency.
