Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the governor of Lagos, has stated that there will be no cover-up in the investigation into the Ikoyi building collapse.
“Anyone who is found to be indicted will undoubtedly face the law,” he said in a statement released Wednesday morning.
Sanwo-Olu made the pledge hours after visiting the site on Gerrard Road, alongside Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu.
The governor inspected the level of work being done in the ongoing search and rescue operation.
The Lagos helmsman expressed appreciation to the responders and all who have joined the efforts.
He confirmed that a help desk has been set up at the site for people seeking information about their relations involved in the incident.
Sanwo-Olu affirmed the earlier announcement that a panel to investigate and make recommendations on how to prevent future occurrence will be set up.
“We are already conducting an internal probe to find out what went wrong and punish those indicted.
“My sincere condolences go to the families who have lost loved ones. May the souls of the departed Rest In Peace”, the statement added.
