Four Die As Houses Collapse In Lagos

Four people have died in the Isheri, Magodo area of Lagos after a house built on a hill collapsed on Saturday.

Femi Oke-Osayintolu, General Manager of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), said the incident occurred around 8:00 a.m.

He said victims trapped in the rubble had been rescued and rushed to a hospital. 

Another building collapsed before midday in Ita Elewa, Ikorodu on Saturday.

According to LASEMA officials, the immediate cause is the heavy downpour across the state.

Also, the building was said to have built with mud bricks and was already showing signs of collapse. It was found that cracks had appeared on its sides prior to the disaster. 

LASEMA has recommended that the remaining part of the building be demolished and the property forfeited  to the state government as stipulated by law.
