Three-Storey Building Under Construction Collapses In Lagos

A three-storey building still under construction on Akanbi Crescent in the Yaba area of Lagos State has collapsed.

The building collapsed into another building beside it, and some people are believed to have died.

An eyewitness told the Punch that a part of the building had collapsed late last year, but the construction did not stop.

A resident of number 29, Lawani Street, a street off the scene of the incident also told the newspaper that her car was affected last year, when a section of the building collapsed, however, construction continued despite the police being called in.

So far, only a 16-year-old boy and another adult male have come out of the rubble while there is an unconfirmed number still trapped.

The Lagos State Emergency Management Agency Response Unit had yet to arrive at the scene as at the time of filing this report.
