Lagos witnessed another building collapse on Saturday when a three-storey building at Ansarudeen Street, Ile-Epo, Ejigbo caved in.

A school, Excel College, is housed in the collapsed building.

Director-General of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, Femi Oke-Osanyintolu, said the building partially collapsed at about 8:15am.


He said, “Information gathered from some officials of the school revealed that the building had previously shown signs of distress and the school was planning to renovate and refortify the structure.
