Another building has collapsed in Lagos on Monday, March 25.

The building, a two-storey edifice collapsed midday on Lagos Island.

According to the Lagos State Management Agency (LASEMA), no one was trapped in the rubble.

Security operatives and emergency workers have arrived at the scene to ensure others residents are safe and that the rubles are disposed of properly, reports Channels Television.

The incident on Monday comes on the heels of a similar mishap which was recorded in the metropolis on Wednesday, March 13, when a three-storey building housing a school collapsed, trapping more than 100 persons, including pupils.

The ill-fated building was located on the crowded Ita-Faji street within the heart of Lagos Island.

Thousands of residents and many emergency workers descended on the scene and rescued many upon arrival, but some remained trapped and witnesses gave early death toll figures at eight to nine.

Lagos State Government later confirmed that a total of 20 people were killed following the collapse of the three-storey building at Ita-Faaji.

The government thereafter set up a five-man panel to investigate the immediate and remote causes of the incident.

The Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development in Lagos, Rotimi Ogunleye, inaugurated the panel on Tuesday.

He explained that the terms of reference of the panel included proffering remedial measures to stem further building collapse in the future, as well as determining the level of negligence on the part of the developer or owner and the role of the state government.

(2988 | Gistmaniac) Online (m) is gradually becoming a childish play when it comes to the news headlines and the details inside.
I mean.. How can you say that many people dead again. But in the details there was no casualty.
This forum is really turning into something else.
Very annoying!!
