Oke-Osanyintolu told the News Agency of Nigeria that after evacuating all the residents, preliminary report on the collapsed building showed it had been “severely distressed with the reinforcement”.

The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project has urged “the governments of Lagos and Oyo states to “take immediate action to address the numerous ongoing human rights impacts of the deadly and catastrophic building collapse in their respective states, including by taking meaningful steps to avoid further damage to the human rights of the people affected.”

The Vice Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the February 23, 2019 election, Peter Obi, has commiserated with the Government and people of Lagos State on the collapse, on Wednesday, of a three-storey building in the Ita Faji area of Lagos Island, which claimed several lives, including those of some school children.
