A yet-to-be-identified person has been killed after a storey building at number 12 Aromire Avenue, opposite Dominos Pizza, Ikeja, Lagos, suddenly collapsed.
According to Vanguard, eyewitnesses said the tragic incident occurred on Wednesday at about 6.45 pm, when the building, still under construction, partially collapsed.
Permanent Secretary, of Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, LASEMA, Dr Femi Oke-Osanyintolu, confirmed the incident.
Oke-Osanyitolu said, “The agency responded to distress calls and upon arrival, discovered that a storey building formerly occupied by KUMS MART, was being worked on by unskilled labourers resulting in a partial collapse.
“An adult male reported to be a welder lost his life instantly at the scene. His remains were recovered and removed from the scene.
“Post-disaster assessment conducted by the agency’s Response Team, LRT, indicates that the building is stable and does not pose a threat to other buildings around.
“The building has been cordoned off and officials of the Lagos State Building and Control Agency, LASBCA and Nigeria Police have been contacted for further action.”
