Femi Osibona, owner of Fourscore Homes, the company in charge of the 21-storey building that collapsed in Ikoyi, Lagos state, has been found dead.
His death was confirmed by an official of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA). Osibona’s remains were recovered by rescue workers recovered on Thursday evening.
The building, one of a group of three under construction, collapsed on Monday afternoon.
There is still no official figure of how many people were in the building when the structure caved in. However, Nema has confirmed it recovered 38 bodies so far from the site.
Also believed to be trapped under the debris are Wale Bob-Oseni, a US-bound real estate dealer and executive director of African Bureau for Legislative Empowerment; Onyinye Enekwe, personal assistant to Osibona who got employed last week; Zainab Sanni, a 25-year-old female National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) member; and Emmanuel Abel, a 16-year-old boy who had travelled from Abuja to work at the site.
