Another building,  a two-storey edifice, collapsed on Lagos Island today, reports say.

According to the Lagos State Management Agency (LASEMA), no one was trapped in the rubbles.

Occupants of the collapsed building have been exiting all apartments and shops attached to the building after the Lagos State building control agency marked the building for demolition last week Friday.

A few others were still moving their property when the building caved in.

Security operatives and emergency workers have arrived at the scene to ensure others residents are safe and that the rubles are disposed of properly.

The incident on Monday comes on the heels of a similar mishap which was recorded in the metropolis on Wednesday, March 13, when a three-storey building housing a school collapsed, trapping more than 100 persons, including pupils.

The ill-fated building was located on the crowded Ita-Faji street within the heart of Lagos Island.
