Sammy died in Ikoyi building collapse less than 10 minutes after he stopped recording Whatsapp stories in his car – Lady reveals

Ann Ikeme, the sister of Samuel Iwelu, one of the victims of the Ikoyi building which collapsed on November 1, has revealed that he died less than 10 minutes after he stopped recording his usual Whatsapp stories in his car.

 

According to the lady, her late brother shared his usual Whatsapp Status by 12:48 (UK time) which is 13:48 local time and the collapse occurred by 13:56 local time as reported by CNN’s Steph Busari.

She also bemoaned the fact that one phone call might have saved his life by keeping him back in the car, and a 10 minutes delay could have made them see again.

One phone call could have been the difference between you going back in or staying in the car. 10mins delay could have been the difference between me see you again.
