Datz the hand of some useless Engr we have in Nigeria and economical landlord dat doesnt want spend much material ans money 2 build a house... Now Govt will take over the house. Its in Nigeria law that any collapse building will automatical be taken by Govt of that state. I sympathize with the victim anyway. God will safe them and keep them alive. All those Engr will go to school and pratice cultism finish and come out with coconut head come dey build rubbish 4 9ja. Once again i pity d kids and adult involve

The contractor shld be booked! Some countries have taken construction to unimaginable heights eg saudi arabia to build world tallest skyscrapper. Its evident that such building collapsing has been ruled out, na Africa- Nigeria that 2 storey building dey scatter nyansh..we wil reach there one day..till then I no go pass 1storey building

Wait o Liinda, but the rubles of this collapsed building look like that of a completed and occupied one. Or we're they converting from bungalow to storey building? Anyway, we thank God for no life loss.

Cutting corners and looking for 'apriko' why won't buildings keep collapsing. I think it is time Lagos state look into serious inspection of building sites in the state to make sure everything is up to code.

Thank God no soul was lost. seriously, Fashola is trying but needs to put more effort as in arresting these contractors who use substandard materials to build houses. thorough supervision is important as well by gvt officials.

This building doesn't look like its under construction. It looks more like an old building. Do you mean refurbishment or maintenance works?

God may none of the injured people lose their lives. If the government wasn't corrupt buildings wouldn't be falling, the right materials and right labour will be dedicated to erecting these buildings, only God alone can intervene
