During cross-examination by State Counsel, E.O. Akinde, the witness said there was no evidence that showed speed in the construction.

He said the building could have collapsed as a result of “premature loading, shock and vibration”.

“Also, we can see from the exhibits B, C and D that some sequence of construction was not followed during the project exhibition.”
