The Death Toll after Building Collapse in Nigeria Increased to Twenty
Twenty people died after a building, including a primary school, collapsed in Nigeria on Wednesday afternoon. More than forty people have been taken alive from under the rubble, reports the health minister of Lagos Friday.
The top floor was illegally arranged as a primary school, according to the governor of the city.
At the time the complex broke down, a hundred students were present. It is not known precisely how many children died.
The building was in such poor condition and was on a list to be demolished. It is more common for buildings in Lagos to collapse due to poor building materials and lax enforcement of regulations. The authorities in Lagos are investigating the cause of the collapse. .
