•LASEMA officials on duty at the collapsed building

Another building has collapsed in Lagos Island during the ongoing demolition in the area.

The building, located at Egerton Square, Oke Arin, collapsed on Monday afternoon trapping some persons.

Details about the collapse which comes less than a week after the Ita Faji collapse that claimed 20 lives are sketchy, but the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency confirmed it through its official Twitter account.

According to LASEMA, the building is one of those marked by the LASCBCA for demolition.

“The officials were on top of the building when some scavengers tried to remove the doors on the ground floor and the remaining parts of the building collapsed on them,” one of the tweets read.

It added that four scavengers sustained minor injuries and had been taken to the nearest hospital for treatment.
