No casualty was record as a four-storey building collapse in Ebute meta, Lagos Mainland.

The building which is a four-storey was under construction along Herbert Macaulay way Ebute-Metta, Lagos Mainland before it collapse.

The state was rocked by the collapse of a four-storey building just some months ago which resulted in the dead of six individuals as from the report we got and it is a miracle that nobody was around the area when this event unfold.

General Manager, Lagos Building Control Agency, LASBCA, Engr. Lekan Shodeinde; ”The agency had taken all necessary steps within its limits, including sealing up of the construction site with a caution tape to stop further work at the site,”

    The recorded collapsed buildings
    It appears there are no professionals involved in the development process of the buildings.
    Pls note that all buildings must have architects and so the 1st question to ask on any building matter is who is the architect?
    Other matters relating to procurement and construction must be managed by qualified and experienced relevant professionals.
