Children been rescued

The fact that a building collapsed is sad, that it housed a school and residents is horrific and terrible.

The building (No. 63 Massey Street, Ita Faaji area of Lagos Island) collapsed On Wednesday, March 13, 2019.

And this is what we get for being stubborn, inhumane and inefficient.

But now is not the time to trade blames of who was right or wrong but a time to pray for the souls of those who have lost their lives and for those who have lost someone.

We only hope this will serve as a lesson to everyone who is involved in building of houses, government agencies and the society at large; we all need to play our role.

This is because a lot of such buildings are abound on the Island especially the “Isale Eko” axis of Lagos Island.

According to the Lagos State Government the building, was marked as distressed in 2017, experienced foundation failure when the bearing capacity of the soil could not sustain the added structures on the building.
Olalekan Shodeinde, the General Manager, Lagos State Building Control Agency (LASBCA) , said that occupants of the building had been evacuated two years ago.
