A five-story building under construction in Apapa, Lagos State, collapsed on Sunday due to a thunder strike orchestrated by heavy rain.

It was gathered that the officials of the Lagos State Building Control Agency (LASBCA) sealed the five-story building.

The collapsed building, which was on Ladipo Oluwole Street, was in the GRA Apapa area of the state. It happened a few days after a seven-story building collapsed in the Banana Island area of the state.

However, a volunteer with the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in Ajeromi Ifelodun LCDA, Asimiyu Tiamiyu, who was among the early callers at the scene, said no casualty was recorded in the incident.

According to him, all the workers at the site of the collapsed building had embarked on Sallah break, which is why no one was involved in the incident.

He, however, advised that the state government should beam a searchlight on the recurring incident of building collapse, which had claimed many lives and destroyed property worth billions of naira.
