How I survived the Ikoyi building disaster! - Man gives testimony 2

One of the workers who survived the Ikoyi building collapse on Monday has recounted he survived the incident.

A man identified as Innocent Amos said he moved away from the building a few seconds before the building collapsed.

He said he came down from the 12th floor of the building where he was working to request for plaster before the incident happened.

In his words;

“I was working on floor number 12. I just stepped out to order for more plaster sand so we can continue our work cos we have exhausted the one give us in the morning. I was standing not far from the pillar that gave the cracking sound. I ran immediately away while the building came down. Still nursing my right ankle. Didn’t know what happened to me there. It’s affecting my right thigh as well. But I’m fine.

The 21-storey Ikoyi building collapsed on Monday afternoon and the death toll has risen to form 5 to 22 according to reports.
