Just In: Building Collapse In Lagos

Published

 

A one-storey building on Sunday collapsed in Oshodi, Lagos State, reportedly killing two people.

Naija News gathered that the building is located at 35, Adesanya Street, Mafoluku area of Oshodi.

In a post on Twitter, the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) stated that the building was undergoing illegal repair when it caved in.

“A storey building at the address suddenly came down with two people said to be trapped and rescued and taken to a nearby hospital by neighbours before the arrival of the Agency’s LRT.

“The building was undergoing illegal renovation before it collapsed this morning. There is an urgent need for complete demolition of the building before it causes any further disaster,” Lasema wrote.
