Four killed after building collapse in Lagos, Nigeria

At least four bodies have been pulled out of a rubble after a building collapsed in Lagos, Nigeria on Saturday.

The storey building in Lagos Island, which was still under construction, went down during a downpour, trapping some construction workers.

A report by local Premium Times news outlet notes that a developer was converting the bungalow building into a three-story building before it collapsed.

Emergency service personnel are still on site conducting search and rescue operations.

The latest building collapse comes barely two weeks after another incident which saw another three-story building go down in the Ebute-Metta area of Lagos, causing deaths and injuries.
