A two-storey building has collapsed in the Ago Palace Way area of Lagos State.

This comes barely five days after 10 people died in a collapsed three-storey building at Ebute Metta, Lagos.

According to emerging reports, the building that collapsed is located at Chris Igadi Street, off Ago Palace Way, opposite Kilimanjaro/ AP filling station.

Dr. Femi Oke-Osanyintolu, Permanent Secretary, Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, (LASEMA), confirmed the incident, adding that the agency responded to the incident at 3:00 am on Saturday, May 7.

”On arrival, information gathered from the residents revealed that the building gave signs several hours before the building collapsed.

”Fortunately, nobody was trapped as all the occupants evacuated the area when the signs began two hours before the collapse.

”A headcount of occupants was carried out to ensure no one was missing and the remains of the building were cordoned off,” he said.

Osanyintolu added that the operation was concluded at about 5:23 am, adding that the site would be handed over to LABSCA and the Ministry of Physical Planning for further investigation.
