Building Collapses In Ikoyi, Many Trapped by fergie001: 7:27pm On Nov 01, 2019
Many artisans were Friday evening feared killed after a building under construction collapsed in Lagos.

The incident occurred at 4:10pm around Glover Court Ikoyi.

It was gathered that the two-storey building caved in the course of decking the second floor.

Although the cause of the collapse was yet to be ascertained, sources said it could be as a result of substandard materials.

Chief Executive Officer of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) Dr. Femi Oke-Osayintolu said the number of persons trapped was yet to be ascertained.

“LASEMA has already activated the Lagos Emergency Response Plan for all first responders to move to the site of the collapsed building. Lagosians within the vicinity of the incident have been enjoined to stay calm and allow emergency responders to do their job.

“We are yet to know the number of persons trapped but I can tell you it was an uncompleted building and workers were on site,” he said.

Oke-Osayintolu also said that LASEMA and the Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency (LASEPA) have evacuated and disposed the rotten edible items found in five containers at Sifax, off Dock Nigeria Limited in Apapa.

He said the evacuation followed inspection of the containers after residents raised alarm of a stench and release of toxic gas into the environment.

The LASEMA boss said: “A joint action team comprising the DG/CEO LASEMA and GM LASEPA has conducted an on the site inspection of the containers. The joint team discovered edibles including fish which had become rotten due to faulty refrigerators.

“The absence of emergency action preparedness plan and appropriate safety measures in place to curtail such incidence and guard against reoccurence was observed.

“A total of 25 containers were located. Five containers laden with edibles have faulty refrigerators. The edibles have therefore defrosted and have become rotten causing severe health hazard to the environment.

“Thirteen houses are located on the street where the containers are located, leaving huge impact on house numbers 2, 4, 6 and 8 Trinity Close Apapa. LASEMA and LASEPA has evacuated and dispose the rotten items.”

Reducing the prices of cement and iron rod is the solution for now.

The masses are in seriouse need of accommodation as prices of building materials keeps increasing daily.

Its either they build for the masses or reduce the cost of building.

Re: Building Collapses In Ikoyi, Many Trapped by MobilityExpress: 10:29pm On Nov 01, 2019
The frequent building collapses in Lagos is because the building blocks industry is unregulated. Every Tom Dick and Harry is making blocks however they want, nobody is regulating or monitoring what they mix and in what proportion they mix to mould blocks, which are being sold to builders. Some of these block makers cut costs or use wrong cement or contaminated sand (too many impurities that reduce quality of adhesion) or mould substandard blocks and that's why you're having building collapses all over. The LASG should as a matter of urgency implement regulations and monitoring to all block moulders, so as to have uniformity of quality. Many building blocks being sold today are substandard. Under 2 months, you can already see cracks in the surfaces of buildings. That's why building collapses are now frequent.

Greed, yes but these frequent collapses is not about substandard materials, and it is really sad that the LASG has been very dumb to see the underlying cause. The underlying cause of building collapse in Lagos is the blocks industry! Not the steel or metal. Nobody is regulating and monitoring who makes blocks in Lagos. Blocks that are later sold and then you have buildings collapsing everywhere, you have new buildings with block cracks under 2 months because those making blocks are making rubbish and yet the LASG government is blind to see this as a serious problem.

I totally disagree with the theory that this building collapsed as result of substandard materials. Builders and owners of buildings in Ikoyi cannot stoop so low, they are big boys. That building may have collapsed due to structural defect as result of impossible design. Part of the building decking may have been designed without pillar. I am judging from the angle from which I am seeing the picture.
