BREAKING: Three-Storey building collapses in Lagos

A three-storey building under construction in the Apapa area of Lagos collapsed on Sunday during a downpour recorded across the state.

Officials of the Lagos State Building Control Agency have sealed the building which is at 45, Ladipo Oluwo Street in Apapa GRA. 

The latest building collapse comes almost two weeks after a seven-story building collapsed on Banana Island in the state.

A volunteer with the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps in Ajeromi Ifelodun Local Council Development Authority, Asimiyu Tiamiyu who was among the early callers at the scene, said no casualty was recorded in the incident. 

According to him, all the workers at the site of the collapsed building had embarked on Sallah break.

He said that was the reason why no one was involved in the incident. 

He noted that the state government must beam its searchlight on the recurring incident of building collapse which had claimed many lives and property worth billions of naira destroyed in the state.
