3 Storey Building Collapses In Lagos Island This Morning. Residents Trapped by informant001: 9:01am On May 29, 2017
Reports filtering in from Lagos have it that a 3 storey building under renovation, just collapsed on Daddy Alaja street, Oke-Arin, Lagos Island. The building collapsed about 7:25am this morning.. Some residents are believed to have been trapped as emergency officials have arrived the scene.

Building collapse is trying to become a norm in Lagos.

Even though there isn't justifiable reasons for this but again if you endeavour to get a competent builder, alaye and omonile will not allow someone to build in peace.

You carry sand and gravel to site....Owodah
You start digging foundation. ......Owodah
You start adding blocks..... Owodah
You do first decking.......Owodah
Owodah continues until people start packing in.

You see unnecessary number of people including matured mums working to complete a building that should probably take 3 days in one day forgetting cement needs sometime to set properly.

Sad development.. .. Care shd be taken when renovating a structure and the said structure shd be well supported with props to avoid excessive vibration on the already weakened structure.


You can't cut corners when you're renovating, get professional.

For all the good that Ambode is doing they really need to deal with these 'traditional landlords' who add no value to the society.

ALL OF THOSE BUILDINGS ARE DEATH TRAPD WAITING TO COLLASPE...
