2-storey building collapses in Lagos

Many people have reportedly escaped unhurt in Ago-Palace Way, near Okota Lagos State, after the partial collapse of a two-storey building in the area.

Unlike what happened in Ebute-Meta where many people were trapped on Sunday,  all occupants of the Ago-Palace Way building were said to have vacated the premises two hours before it caved in.

Reports from the axis said vivid signs of building collapse were noticed before the occupants rushed out of the building to avoid being trapped.

The incident occurred at Chris Igadi Street, in the early hours of Saturday but emergency operations which commenced immediately were said to have lasted till daybreak.

Details of what led to the collapse could not be ascertained at press time.

Confirming the incident, the Permanent Secretary, Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, LASEMA, Dr Olufemi Oke-Osanyintolu, said no casualty was recorded during the incident, adding that the site of the collapsed structure had been cordoned off and handed over to the Lagos State Building Control Agency (LASBCA).
