The Imo state-born construction worker, identified as William Nwachukwu, gave an exclusive interview with the Guardian where he talked about his escape.

According to the young man, he was sleeping on the fourth floor of the building when the foundations of the massive structure began to shake. So he took the initiative and jumped into the next building.

The young boy who moved to Lagos from Imo state in search of greener pastures said he slept and bathed in the building and was given N3,500 a day as a casual worker.

Watch him speak below,

What The Construction Firm Told The Owner Before The Incident

Prowess Engineering Limited, the company that began construction of the collapsed Ikoyi building, warned the facility owner of the dangers ahead of yesterday’s unfortunate incident.

This was confirmed by a letter from the company in February 2020 when it withdrew its services, according to Punch.

According to the media organization, the company has discontinued its services on the grounds that it no longer shares the same vision with its client believed to be Fourscore Heights Limited, as stated in the letter titled Re: Proposed Gerrard Terraces For Fourscore Limited,’ and signed by the company’s managing director, Muritala Olawale.

What Prowess Said About The Project

It stated, “We couldn’t guarantee the integrity of the third (collapsed building) from anything above the fourth floor.

“This letter is to formally inform you of the withdraw of our structural consultancy service from the above-named project. We arrived at this decision due to the fact that we no longer share the same vision with you as our client in terms of how the project is being executed.

“We can guarantee the integrity of the first two buildings and also work done up to the fourth floor of the third building supervised by us provided specifications have been met in terms of the required concrete strength. (Continue reading)
