Explanations gotten revealed that the most of the particles fell in the exact position where he was sleeping, which makes the survival quite miraculous.

Godwin went for a Drama rehearsal overnight and had just gotten back early in the morning – Godwin decided to take a nap before starting the day’s activities. The buiding collapsed when he was sleeping and people had to save him from the broken particles he was covered with. Godwin said “I was under the broken blocks and woods for about 7 minutes, it is miraculous.”

Godwin was later taken to health centre after but he didn’t appear badly injured. There was another guy who also rented a room in the part of the building that collapsed but he was awake and he was at the top floor – he only fell along with the buiding.
