Accept our apologies, estate development company pleads
The management of Lekki gardens sympathise with victims and their relatives, for the fatal collapse of one of their ongoing projects at Lekki last week.
The residential project which was under construction at Kushenla Road, Ikate Elegushi at Lekki came crashing down in the early hours of tuesday, March 8 2016. Most of the victims of the collapse were artisans working at the site, who spent the night in the building.
In a statement published in Vanguard Newspaper on Monday, March 14 2016, the company, through its agent, Steve Agbiboa, expressed profoundregret and sadness at the collapse. According to the statement, the company "... regret(s) the loss of lives as a result of this incident and we are making every effort to provide adequate medical care and attention to their next of kin and also the survivors. "Please accept our sympathy," the statement concluded.
It was revealed last week, after the tragic occurence, that the building had earlier been sealed offby government officials for being erected above the number of floors permitted. Hence the Lagos State Government consequently directed that work at the site be suspended, and ordered theState Police Command to seal it off as it is now marked a crime scene.
