Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, has ordered the immediate investigation into the collapse of a building at his hometown, Iperu, in Ikenne Local Government Area of the state.

A one-storey building which was along Ogere Road in Iperu had collapsed, killing two people, on Thursday.

It was alleged that the incident occurred during “an illegal demolition” of the structure by the owners.

A statement issued on Saturday in Abeokuta by the Governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Kunle Somorin, said Abiodun had constituted a four-man team comprising the State Commissioner for Physical Planning, Tunji Odunlami, Special Adviser on Environment, Ola Oresanya, Special Adviser Bureau of Lands and Survey, Ololade Salami and the State Commissioner of Police Mr Lanre Bankole.

The team, according to the statement, was mandated to look into the remote and immediate causes of the building collapse and report back in one week.

While commiserating with the families of the deceased for the unfortunate loss of their loved ones, Abiodun assured that anyone found guilty of or culpable in the incident will be dealt with according to the law.

“No one who violates the building codes or regulations in the state will be allowed to go scot-free. Such person or persons will be made to face the full wrath of the law”, the Governor said.
