Imagine your home were you slept every night now becoming your coffin
So many buildings in that Lagos Island are already weak and are death trap. The earlier the government look into it, the better for many of the occupants. I pray & hope they recover people alive.
Chaii… Majority of this buildings have faulty foundations and were built with substandard materials just so that the landlords can have buildings to rent out…
May the souls of the departed Rip
Lord have mercy
Lagos island , especially obalende has so many tall residential buildings that were originally one storey but converted to multiple storey sitting on one storey foundation. Oda buildings built recently built too were rushed. That zone is a danger zone, I work dere so I know
