Governor Sanwo-Olu suspends officials and investigates fatal hospital lift accident.

Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has suspended the General Manager of Lagos State Infrastructure and Asset Management Agency (LASIAMA), Adenike Adekambi, in response to the death of Doctor Vwaere Diaso at General Hospital, Odan, Lagos Island on August 1.

The governor also sacked and blacklisted the facility managers at the hospital. According to reports, a panel has also been established to investigate the accident and recommend preventive measures.

With two weeks to completing her housemanship in the hospital, Vwaere was on her way to pick up a delivery from a dispatch rider when the lift she took from the 10th floor crashed to the ground floor. She died from injuries she sustained in the crash.

Her colleagues had previously raised concerns about the faulty lift, which the hospital management allegedly ignored.
