Barely 72 hours after a seven story building collapsed in Banana Island area of Lagos State, a five storey building under construction has reportedly collapsed on 45, Ladipo Oluwo Street in GRA Apapa area of the State.
The collapse of the building in Apapa was due to thunder strike orchestrated by heavy rains in the early hours of Sunday.
Officials of the Lagos State Building Control Agency have sealed the five storey building under construction following the collapse.
No casualty was recorded in the incident, according to Asimiyu Tiamiyu, a Volunteer with the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corp in Ajeromi Ifelodun LCDA.
Tiamiyu who was among the early callers at the scene on Sunday said, all the workers at the site of the collapsed building had embarked on Sallah break, reason why no one was involved in the incident.
He noted that the State government must beam a search light on the recurring incident of collapse building which had claimed many lives and destroyed properties worth billions of naira.
