Sources at the scene of the incident disclosed that six other workers who were brought in from Cotonou, Benin, had escaped from the building when it came down.

Eyewitnesses disclosed that the labourers had been resident at the building in Delta, which was still undergoing construction when it came down.

Findings by Vanguard revealed that the building, which is owned by a traditional chief from the Oruarivie-Abraka Kingdom and popular hotelier, Christopher Onojatanure, is meant to be an annex of an already existing hotel in the university community.

Owner of the building, Christopher Onojatanure, while expressing dismay at the scene of the incident, said he was shocked over the collapse.
