Engineer Adegoke Ogunbabi, a tenant at the collapsed 3-story building in Ebute Meta, Lagos, has narrated how he narrowly escaped death in the incident.

The building on Ibadan Street, collapsed around 9 pm on Sunday, May 1, trapping many tenants.

10 persons had been recovered dead so far while 23 persons were rescued as operations continue at the site.

Speaking to journalists on Monday, May 2, Ogunbabi said he was asleep in his bedroom on the last floor when the building caved in.

Ogunbabi, who escaped without a crash, said he had been living in the building for 10 years.

“I was on my bed when the building collapsed. I normally do exercise because I had a spinal cord injury,” he narrated.

“God was my Saviour. I slept around 7 pm. A neighbor called me but I didn’t pick up the call because I hate disturbance while sleeping. Someone else called me around 9.30 pm. I was hearing some sounds and noticed that the building was collapsing.

“I was naked. I didn’t entertain fear. I was determined that whatever God wishes would happen. I was assuring myself that I would be safe and God did it. Someone came to rescue me.”

Ogunbabi, who said the landlord didn’t reside in the building, expressed grief over the loss of his neighbors to the tragedy.

“I feel bad that some people died, especially a young man called David. He always played with me,” he added.
