 LASG records another two-storey building collapses 

Four families occupying a two-storey building at Onipanu area of Lagos on Tuesday night scampered to safety before the building collapsed to the ground.

Mr Ibrahim Farinloye, the South-West Coordinator of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), confirmed this in a statement on Wednesday in Lagos.

Farinloye said that the building, located at No 15 Oke Arin Street, off Shillon, Onipanu, a suburb of Lagos, belongs to Christ Divine Church and is not an abandoned property, as speculated.

“The four families escaped to safety after noticing signs from the building. Efforts are on the ground for the families to retrieve their personal belongings,” he added.

He added that no one was injured, and no life was lost.

Emergency responders at the scene of the incident included personnel from the Civil Defence, Police, NEMA and Lagos State Building Control Agency.
