Many people were trapped in the rubble, including the Managing Director, Fourscore Heights Limited, Mr Femi Osibona, who owned the building.

The South-West Coordinator of the National Emergency Management Agency, Ibrahim Farinloye, on Thursday confirmed that 33 males and three females have been brought out dead from the rubble.

Farinloye added that nine people which included one female and eight males were rescued alive.

While reacting to the heartbreaking development, Stephanie Coker has said that lives need to be more fully protected across Nigeria, than before.

Taking to her Instagram Stories hours ago, she wrote;

“We are living haphazardly in Nigeria and subjected to so much emotional trauma.

We have to pray about everything because bare minimum standards are nonexistent in most sectors in Nigeria. Citizens have become desensitized to some of the most horrific accidents. It’s not normal for a trailer to fall on a car, it is not normal for a building to just collapse…

I couldn’t even sleep last night just thinking about the human beings trapped in Ikoyi. There needs to be more value placed on ALL human life in Nigeria.”
