The Nation reported that the Lagos State Emergency management Agency (LASEMA) General Manager Adeshina Tiamiyu who also spoke about the Lagos school building collapse which left 18 dead and 41 others injured, said the building has been marked for demolition since 2014.
An eyewitness, Abayomi Olaniyan, said he was among those rescuing the victims before the official rescue team came. Olaniyan, said:
“Some were rescued alive, some dead. One of the teachers still called shortly that she was on the ground floor of the collapsed building, trapped with 20 pupils.
“Something similar happened around here last year. The issue of building collapse is common here and government must do something about it. Houses will be marked and due for demolition but they will not demolish it; they will renovate it. So many houses here are weak; they are meant to be demolished but they will tell you they are renovating it; they will only paint it.”
