On Saturday, October 2, the Lagos State government pulled down the remaining part of a two-story building and four others.

Moreover, the government pulled down the building for failing integrity tests conducted by Solid Material Testing Agency, LABSCA, and Physical Planning Ministry.

However, the test was conducted after one person died and four persons were injured in the collapsed building around 4:10 pm on Friday.

The Lagos State Emergency Agency (LASEMA) Director-General, Dr. Olufemi Oke-Osanyintolu confirmed the collapse.

Coincidentally, the four buildings, under construction at Glover Court, Ikoyi share the same compound with the collapsed building.

Apparently, the decision to pull down the building is to avert any further loss of lives and properties.
