Lagos has suffered another building collapse, this time in the Ladipo Oluwole Street, GRA, Apapa of the state.
The collapse occurred barely 24 hours after the state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu inspected and ordered the demolition of some buildings in Banana Island over defective structures as well as an unapproved plan.
It was gathered that the building caved in following a thunder strike during the early morning downpour in Lagos.
Meanwhile, men of the Lagos State Fire and Rescue Service, Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, LASEMA, and other emergency responders have raced to the scene to salvage the situation.
Director Lagos State Fire and Rescue Service, Magret Adeseye, who confirmed the incident said there was no causality recorded in the incident as all the workers at the site of the collapsed building had embarked on Sallah break, the reason why no one was involved in the incident..
