*Puts GM LASIAMA on suspension

The Lagos State government on Sunday sacked and blacklisted the facility managers at the General Hospital in Odan, where a medical doctor died from an elevator accident.

In a statement by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Information and Strategy, Olumide Sogunle, on the report of the panel of inquiry set up on the incident, the state government also said that the General Manager of the Lagos State Infrastructure and Asset Management Agency is to immediately proceed on suspension.

The state government added that the operations and line of reporting of the facility managers have been restructured to involve the hospital management directly

“We have handed the installation and maintenance contractors to the police for further investigation and likely prosecution if they are found culpable.

“The police will also investigate anyone else that might have been found to be negligent.
Engineers are working to unravel why all the safety devices in the elevator failed at the same time. All our staff are fully insured. We have informed our life insurance providers about this incident.

“The Lagos Safety Commission has been directed to immediately carry out an audit of all elevators in public offices. This is besides the usual safety arrangements that have always existed.”
