Eight families have showed up for DNA testing in connection with the Otedola Link Bridge fire.

The Head of the Lagos State DNA and Forensic Centre, Richard Somiari, made the disclosure.

Somiari, a forensic expert, said that more families were still expected to visit the facility in connection with the deadly explosion that occurred on June the 28.

He said that the duration needed to complete the DNA process and results interpreted could not be ascertained because of protocols that must be followed, due to the magnitude of the accident.

According to him, there are two processes involved, including the actual DNA matching and the process by the pathologist, who takes samples from the remains that were recovered.

On July the 2, the Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Dr Jide Idris said the government would be conducting DNA forensic studies so that the right bodies could be handed over to the appropriate families for proper burial.
