A Lagos High Court sitting at Igbosere on Tuesday rejected the bail documents presented by sureties to the second defendant, Sola Olumofe, in the suit against Lekki Gardens Estate.
The defendants are being tried for alleged negligence and other charges, following the collapse of a six-storey building at Lekki on March 8 last year.
Five people reportedly died in the incident.
Other defendants are: the Managing Director of Lekki Gardens, Richard Nyong; Henry Odofin; Molabake Mortune; and Omotilewa Joseph.
The companies involved are: Lekki Gardens Estate Limited, Get Too Rich Investment Limited and HC Insight Solutions Limited.
They are facing a six-count charge bordering on failure to obtain building permits, building approvals and involuntary manslaughter.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the defendants were arraigned on July 3.
Justice Sybil Nwaka had after the arraignment allowed the defendants, except the second defendant, who was not arraigned before a magistrates’ court to continue enjoying the bail earlier granted them by the magistrate.
