4-year-old boy dies as another building collapses in Lagos

Another building has collapsed in Lagos Island, killing a four-year-old child.

The collapsed building was one of the defective buildings marked for demolition on the Island by the state government.

The incident, it was learnt, occurred on Monday evening in Agarawa.

It led to the death of a four-year-old boy.

An eyewitness said that the victim was crushed by the structure which collapsed partially while he was fast asleep.

Residents said the three-storey building was marked for demolition about two months ago by the Lagos State Building Control Agency.

They condemned the inability of the state government to pull down buildings already marked for demolition, saying the incident could have been prevented.
