Written by News Room on November 6, 2021
The Lagos State Government has said that bodies recovered from the collapsed Ikoyi building are ready for identification, calling on families of the deceased to go to the Infectious Disease Hospital (IDH) in Yaba for identification of their loved ones.
Lagos State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Gbenga Omotoso, said this giving an update about the incident said an autopsy would be carried out on the corpses before they would be released to their families.
He said the autopsy is important because the law says that whenever there is death due to incidents like the collapsed building, an autopsy must be done before the body is released.
The Commissioner also debunked reports that the rescue operation team at the collapsed building stopped the search and rescue work on Thursday.
He said work was still ongoing and would continue until the government could account for everybody inside the building at the time of collapse and certify that nobody is left behind in the collapsed building.
