Oyedele was immediately transported to Osun State General Hospital, where he is currently receiving medical treatment. Hospital sources indicate that he sustained multiple fractures but is in a stable condition.

The construction site has been temporarily shut down as officials from the Osun State Ministry of Works and Transport conduct an investigation into the accident. Preliminary findings suggest that inadequate safety measures may have contributed to the fall.

The building contractor, who spoke on condition of anonymity, expressed shock and pledged full cooperation with the investigation. “We prioritize safety on our sites and will ensure such an accident does not happen again,” he stated.
