Three injured in Lagos building collapse


Three persons suspected to be artisans on Thursday sustained injuries after a building under construction collapsed in Lagos.

The incident occurred at Kayode Aluko Olokun Close, Shangisha in Magodo.

It was gathered the storey-building was at plastering stage when it caved in around 3pm while it rained.

The three men who were trapped underneath the rubble were said to have been among those plastering the house at the time of the incident.

While two of them were said to have sustained serious injuries, the third victim’s condition was said to be stable.

A source, who hinted on the incident, said the RRS operatives rushed the victims to the hospital and cordoned off the area.
