Part of a two-storey building collapsed on Wednesday in Lagos and fell on the house next to it, damaging the roof in the process.
The Director General, Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), Dr Olufemi Oke-Osanyintolu, confirmed the incident.
Reports says that the incident occurred at 29 Adedoyin Str. inward Ajangbadi, Ojo Local Government Area of the State, at about 6:pm on Wednesday.
Oke-Osanyintolu, however, said no loss of life nor injury was recorded at the scene of the incident.
“We have gone ahead to ensure that the occupants of the adjacent buildings have vacated from the building.
“The occupants of the adjacent building are forewarned of the imminent danger of continuous stay in the building without conducting a Non Destructive Integrity Test to ascertain the habitability of the building.
“The affected portion has been cordoned off while the Lagos State Building Control Agency (LABSCA), Zonal Office has been informed.

He also appealed for the cooperation of the residents to stay away from the building for adequate safety and security.
