    Good riddance! Guys, behold the faces of GREED that led to the untimely death of about 40 of our fellow brothers and sisters!

    See the one called Taiwo with his television head. The money that was responsible for the death of those people will forever purge you. You will never enjoy it.

      THEY SHOULD GIVE THEM MINIMUM OF 20YEARS IN IMPRISONMENT… THEY ARE NOT IN ANYWAY BETTER THAN THE LIVES CLAIMED. VAGABONDS…. THEY USE CHEEP MATERIALS TO BUILD SO THAT THEY CAN GAIN MORE MONEY…. FRAU-STARS AND COWS.

    Until when people start to account and take responsibility for their actions, we will never witness any change in this Country. I hope that Judge did not do that just to keep people silent for a while. The offense these guys committed is non bailable. They have to remain in custody throughout the proceeding of their case because we are talking about 35 individuals who lost their lives because of their greed. Let us at least for once value our lives by looking out for the interest of ourselves. All lives matters. Greediness and desire for gain are the main reasons behind this disaster. These guys will have to spend more of their gain if not borrowing extra money to get themselves off death penalty. That is if they are lucky to get life imprisonment sentencing.

    Very good. Most of these contractors do not care about others, they buy fake materials for building and buy very little cement ie 50 bags of cement for building that requires 80 or 100 bags. Nonsense
