The building is uncompleted and it was in it that the mother of the child left the According to an eyewitness Ajayi:

“I was just driving by when I heard people screaming and I had to stop. This happened at a big building that was sealed off by EFCC on Esther Adeleke Street, Lekki phase I. Some domestic staff stay there and one of them was careless with her child and he crawled to the uncovered soakaway and fell inside.

Nobody was able to rescue him until he floated. I was the one that helped them to the hospital with my car but the doctor’s effort to bring back the child to life was in vain.”
