Who owns the 21-Storey collapsed building? VP Osinbajo angle to ownership revealed. The controversies on who owned the 21-Storey collapsed building that has claimed the lives of 36 people comprising of 33 men and three females still lingers.
A probe panel was also set up by the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu who equally gave indefinite suspension order to the General Manager, Gbolahan Oki.
The following is the angle of the Vice-President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo on who actually owned the property in a detailed report by Sahara Reporters.
”On Monday the building located on Gerrard Road, Ikoyi, Lagos collapsed with a yet-to-be-ascertained number of persons still trapped beneath the rubble.
Eaglesforesight earlier reported on Thursday that no fewer than 40 persons have been confirmed dead at the site of the collapsed 21-storey building. The rescue and emergency personnel have evacuated nine persons alive from the debris of the fallen building.
The survivors comprised eight males and one female, while the fatalities had three females and 33 males.
Different sources on Tuesday told Eaglesforesight that the landed property was bought by Osinbajo from Chief Michael Ade-Ojo, founder of Elizade Motors (Elizade Nigeria Limited) shortly after he became the Vice President of the Federal Republic Of Nigeria.
“Osinbajo is linked to the property, that house that collapsed on Monday in Lagos State. I was aware when he got the landed property from Elizade. A woman was selling food at the place before, that was where all workers and labourers working around here do eat,” a facility manager told Eaglesforesight source from SaharaReporters.
“The Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, has a lot of properties in the area, he is using his brother to manage the properties. The developer, Femi Osibona is only fronting for him. Osinbajo even bought another property for his brother in the area, it’s at Mosley Street. The brother is the one managing it personally, he comes there almost every time.
“If the Lagos State Government is serious, they should tell us exactly who owns the land in question.”
