About 100 pupils are feared dead in what is yet again, a disaster that is avoidable.
About 100 pupils in Lagos are feared dead, after a 3-storey building that housed their school collapsed on Wednesday in the country’s commercial capital Lagos.
It was indeed a horrible thing to behold parents gnashing their teeth at the Ita Faji, area of Lagos Island where the incident took place.
Nigeria is frequently hit by building collapses, with weak enforcement of regulations and poor construction materials often used. In 2016, more than 100 people were killed when a church came down in southeastern Nigeria.
The National Emergency Management Agency has moved to the site to remove possible survivors.
