The commissioner said: “This is a great loss but we thank God that no life was lost. The building is mightier than the land and materials used were not good enough.”

“We are going to present our report to the Deputy Governor the moment we leave this place and adequate steps would be taken.”

“The Oyo State Government is going to deal with the culprits accordingly, it is not even likely that the owner of the building will get this space again because the person has to undergo necessary procedures.”
