2 Storey Building Collapses, Kills Landlord, Pastor Daniel Obasi in Lagos
Pastor Daniel Obasi was killed when a two-story structure under construction at 77, Tapa Road, Oke-Ojo, Isawo in Ikorodu, Lagos State, fell.
The landlord was the only victim of the fallen structure, according to Ibrahim Farinloye, the Lagos State Acting Coordinator of the National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA.
The event happened around 2.30 p.m. on Tuesday, according to Farinloye.
Obasi was previously reported trapped, but his body was later discovered from the rubble, according to him.
He stated the deceased’s body had been put in the General Hospital’s morgue in Ikorodu, and that the collapsed structure was an addition to the hospital.
“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.
