Document has confirmed that only 15 floor was approved for the 21-storey building which collapsed on Monday, 1 November, 2021.
The document validated the earlier statement made by suspended General Manager of the Lagos State Building Control Agency (LSABCA), Mr. Gbolahan Oki that the owner of the building got approval for 15 floor.
In the document in the possession of this medium, it was discovered that the state Physical Planning Permit Authority issued the approval.
The document confirmed that the approval for 15 floor, three blocks of buildings was issued to Fourscore Height Limited of 44b,c,d Gerard Road, Southwest Ikoyi on 9 April, 2019.
The approval was given for construction of the buildings meant for residential purpose. The buildings address was 44b,c,d Gerard Road, Southwest Ikoyi.
The registration number for the approval was 1v2019/DO/033/67 issued on 5 April, 2019 while the Development Permit Number issued on 9 April, 2019 was DCB/DO/2442 IV.
It was gathered that the suspended GM resumed in the agency two months ago and that it was the current Permanent Secretary in the state Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development who served as the DG of LASBCA when the approval was given.
It was further gathered that Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu had earlier ordered that the buildings be sealed off and this was done for four months. Thus, there is need for government and indeed, the investigative panel to uncover who authorised the Re-opening of the building.
