IGP Alkali Usman is set to visit the scene of a building collapse that occurred in Ikoyi, Lagos State on Monday.
AllNews Nigeria learned that the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Alkali Usman, departed Abuja on Tuesday afternoon.
The Lagos Police Commissioner, Hakeem Odumosu, and other senior policemen in the state have been awaiting the IGP at the venue.
“The IGP is coming to Lagos to visit the scene of the collapsed building in Ikoyi. The IGP is already airborne and could land any moment from now,” a police officer said.
According to reports gathered thus far, no fewer than 50 people were trapped in the collapsed building with efforts ongoing to save them.
Meanwhile, The PUNCH states that Prowess Engineering Limited, the company that began the construction of the Ikoyi collapsed building withdrew from the project in February 2020.
The company withdrew its services on grounds that it no longer shared the same vision with its client believed to be Fourscore Heights Limited as addressed in a letter and confirmed by the Managing Director, Muritala Olawale.
Prowess Engineering Limited, which had constructed two other buildings for its client, said it couldn’t guarantee the integrity of the third (collapsed building) from anything above the fourth floor.
