A two-storey building under construction at 77, Tapa Road, Oke-Ojo, Isawo in Ikorodu, Lagos State, has collapsed, killing the owner, identified as Pastor Daniel Obasi.

The Lagos State Acting Coordinator, National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA, Ibrahim Farinloye, who confirmed the incident to newsmen, said the landlord was the only victim of the collapsed building.

Farinloye said the incident occurred at about 2.30 p.m on Tuesday.

According to him, Obasi was earlier reported trapped, but the body was later recovered from the rubble.

He said the deceased’s body has been deposited at the morgue of the General Hospital, Ikorodu, adding that the collapsed building was an attachment to the main building.

“The cause of the collapse was suspected to be inadequate timeline to allow sand-filled land to compact properly before the construction started,” Farinloye said.

He said further investigations would be conducted by relevant agencies.
