Another building has partially collapsed in the Ikotun area of Lagos State.
The one-storey building was said to house nine shops and 15 rooms. Fortunately, there were no lives lost or injuries recorded.
According to the Director-General of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), Dr Damilola Oke-Osanyintolu, the building was found to be conspicuously distressed as many cracks were observed on the walls, pillars and decking.
The three-story building collapsed in the early hours of Saturday while the occupants were asleep.
Oke-Osanyintolu noted that the remains of the deceased have been transported to the mortuary, while the nine others who sustained injuries were being administered pre-hospital care by the agency.
He said all the occupants have been evacuated while the building has been cordoned off.
