The body of Mr. Femi Osibona, the developer of the collapsed Ikoyi high-rise building, has been recovered, according to Arise Television.
Reports monitored on that television station said two reliable sources confirmed that Osibona’s body had been found and identified.
An eyewitness said Osibona was in the elevator area when the building came down.
The 21-storey building on Gerrard Road in Ikoyi, Lagos collapsed on Monday, claiming over thirty lives, while several people are still believed to be trapped in the rubble.
Nine survivors had been rescued so far. Three of them have been discharged from the hospital.
