افتراضي Another injured as building collapses in Lagos.

A man is believed to be trapped in a three-storey building that collapsed in Lagos Island on Wednesday afternoon. Apart from the man, who was identified as a bricklayer working with a hammer on the building before the collapse, a yet to be identified elderly woman was also reportedly injured.

A resident of the building, Goddey Onasanya, reportedly lost the N400,000 he had in his one-room apartment at the time the building came down. "I am a printer and I just brought the money in yesterday. It was meant for a project I am handling. As of now, we have not seen the money," he said.


Onasanya, who lived on the last floor, said more than twenty families were affected by the incident.
The circumstances surrounding the building collapse were still sketchy as at the time of filing this report, but a resident, who did not want to be named, said he had heard a bricklayer hitting the building wall with a hammer just before it collapsed.


"Everyone knew the building was not strong; I heard the man (bricklayer) still working with a hammer before it collapsed. So he may still be inside," he said. Some residents also confirmed that the building collapsed while construction workers brought by the landlord were working on a pillar.


According to the residents, the landlord, popularly called Baba Luku, disappeared after the building collapsed, to escape from a raging mob Emergency workers, including officials of the State Emergency Management Agency, LASEMA, and the Red Cross, were seen clearing the debris.


During the rescue exercise, the adjoining three-storey buildings on either side of the collapsed building were also sealed by the State Physical Planning Development Authority (LASPPDA). Speaking to journalists, the deputy director of the agency, Rafiu Adekunle, said the sealed buildings would undergo necessary tests.


"If they pass the test, they will stand. If they don't, they will be brought down," he added, Interestingly, Adekunle disclosed that the collapsed building had earlier been recommended for an "integrity test", which the landlord failed to do.


Meanwhile, the South-West coordinator of National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), Iyiola Akande, disclosed that the injured woman had been taken to a hospital. "Our men were deployed here immediately we heard of the collapsed and for now, only one person is injured. We are still working to see what else could be salvaged," he said.
