BREAKING: Many feared dead/trapped as another building collapses in Lagos Island
Another building has just collapsed at No 57, Egerton Square, Oke Arin, Lagos Island with many feared dead and trapped in it.
This is happening barely a few days after the building collapse which killed many school kids at Ita faji, Lagos Island last week.
A pregnant woman, the proprietor of the nursery/Primary school and 19 others, including no fewer than 12 pupils died last Wednesday, witnesses and hospital sources said.
The pregnant woman was one of the persons rescued from the rubble, immediately after the building collapsed, but she died in the hospital.
Most of the victims were rescued from the rubble on Wednesday, but died at the General Hospital as doctors failed to save them.
10 different families occupied the first and the ground floors, while the school occupied the second and fourth floors.
