A building has again collapsed in Lagos. This occured in the early hours of Wednesday at the Oke-arin area of Ilupeju/Palm Groove. 

The incident was said to have recorded no loss of life, except for an adult male that sustained minor injuries. He was quickly rushed to the hospital for the necessary care and treatment.

A female adult also reportedly escaped death at the scene of the building collapse which occurred precisely at Number 15 of Oke-Arin Street, Ilupeju.

It was learnt that the incident was due to aging of the structure, making the building  become dilapidated. 

The affected area has since been cordoned off to prevent further threat.

In his updates about the incident, the Permanent Secretary, Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, LASEMA, Dr Oluwafemi Oke-Osanyintolu said, “Upon arrival at the incident scene, an abandoned 2 -storey building had collapsed to ground zero”.

The two-storey structure reportedly collapsed to ground zero at 12:45a.m on Wednesday, July 13 2022.
