The NEMA chief described the collapsed building as an attachment to the main building.

Quoting a neighbour of the deceased, the coordinator said that construction work was suspended earlier in the day, due to the ongoing Eid-el-Kabir festivities.

“The cause of the collapse was suspected to be inadequate time to allow land to compact properly before commencement of construction and using of poor building materials,’’ said Farinloye. (NAN)
