Pastor Daniel Obasi, the pastor of Divine Light Prophetic Mission in Ikorodu, Lagos State, killed after his two-story building under construction fell while he was inside.
The sad occurrence occurred on Tuesday, July 20, 2021, just one day after the construction workers celebrated Eid-el-Kabir.
The 55-year-old father of five was reportedly trapped as the building collapsed on him. Emergency responders then retrieved his body from the rubble and handed it over to Isawo Division Police.
Confirming the incident, Lagos State Acting Coordinator, National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA, Ibrahim Farinloye said the landlord was the only victim of the collapsed building.
According to him, “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.”
