    The PUNCH reported yesterday that Prowess Engineering Limited, the company that began the construction of the building withdrew from the project in February 2020.

    Prowess Engineering Limited, which had constructed two other buildings for its client, said it couldn’t guarantee the integrity of the third (collapsed building) from anything above the fourth floor.
