Of the 36 now confirmed dead, 3 are women and 33 are men.

It is believed that most of the victims are construction workers. Rescue operations are ongoing, four days after.

The developer of the property is believed to be among those trapped beneath the wreckage.

On Wednesday, November 3, Lagos Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu announced that they have been 9 survivors.

The Lagos State Government has also set up an information desk outside the collapsed property.

Friends and families of loved ones who were in the property when it collapsed, would subsequently be directed to a morgue where they can identify their loved ones for burial and closure.

Governor Sanwo-Olu has suspended the General Manager of the Lagos State Building Control Agency (LASBCA), Mr. Gbolahan Oki, and a panel has been set up to investigate circumstances that led to the building’s collapse.

The governor has admitted that mistakes were made from all sides.
