ccording to Punch, Tiamiyu said that the last body was recovered from the debris of the collapsed building at about 3 AM.
WE STOPPED WORK AT 3: 00 A.M AFTER RECOVERING THE LIFELESS BODY OF A MALE AND WE ARE SURE THERE IS NO CASUALTY LEFT UNDER THE DEBRIS.
Tiamiyu also debunked reports that the school housed over 100 pupils. He said:
I HAVE SEEN THE PICTURE OF THE BUILDING BEFORE IT COLLAPSED AND I CAN CONFIRM TO YOU THAT THE FLOOR THAT HOUSED THE SCHOOL CANNOT ACCOMMODATE UP TO 100 PUPILS.
A list of survivors published by Punch showed that 41 people survived the collapse, and a health worker shared that some of them were transferred to LUTH, LASUTH and the accident centre at Tollgate to decongest the Lagos Island General Hospital.
