Obasi’s body was later recovered from the rubbles by emergency responders and handed over to Isawo Division Police.

Narrating the incident, a neighbour who pleaded anonymity, said construction works were suspended on Tuesday because of the Eid-el-Kabir celebration.

She said workers were at work till late evening on Monday.

The Police in Isawo Division have deposited the body in the morgue of the General Hospital, Ikorodu.

Confirming the incident, Lagos State Acting Coordinator, National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA, Ibrahim Farinloye, attributed the incident to the inadequate timeline for the construction work.

He said: “The cause of the collapse was suspected to be inadequate timeline to allow sand-filled land to compact properly before the commencement of construction and poor building materials, according to neighbours.”

Farinloye said further investigations would be conducted by relevant agencies.
