On Thursday, October 24, another story building collapsed in the Ojuelegba area of Lagos State.

However, the incident occurred at No. 7, Rufai Street, Ojuelegba, around 8:55 pm.

Moreover, the collapse happened twelve days after a 3-story building at Magodu Phase 1 crashed down.

Although, no life was lost as virtually all the residents vacated the building before it finally crashed.

Meanwhile, a tenant who spoke with reporters said the building has been collapsing since October 18.

In addition, another resident, Mr. Emeka Anozie said he alerted all the tenants when a window from the back flat collapsed around 7 pm.

Tenants removed some of their belongings from the house before the entire building collapsed a few minutes later.

After all, the Lagos State Building Control Agency (LASBCA) marked the building a few months back.

Specifically, the agency served a notice on March 25 and May 21 respectively, warning residents and the property owner to vacate the building.

The Director-General of LASBCA, Dr. Olufemi Oke-Osanyintola said he has mobilized his team and other safety agencies to the scene to ensure the protection of lives and properties.

LASBCA has brought the building to ground zero and the area is now safe.
