Daily Independent says, Osinbajo however condoled with the families and relatives of all those who have died, were injured or were affected in the collapse, saying he considers this painful loss of lives a horrible tragedy.

Debunking the publication on Friday, he said, ” the attention of the Vice President has been drawn to an obviously sponsored falsehood regarding the recently collapsed building published by Sahara Reporters on November 4th, 2021, to the effect that: The VP owns the land upon which the collapsed building in Ikoyi stood.

“That the said land was sold to him by Chief Michael Ade. Ojo, Chairman of Elizade Motors; and that the Vice President, at some point, intervened with the regulatory authorities in Lagos State to unseal the said property.

“Let it be made absolutely clear that Prof. Yemi Osinbajo does not own and has never owned the said land. He has also never been involved, in any shape or form, in the development of this or any other land since he became Vice President.

“At no time whatsoever did the VP buy this or any other piece of land from Chief Michael Ade. Ojo, or entered into any transaction for the sale of that land or any other piece of land from Chief Ade. Ojo or anyone for that matter.
