“We are capable of doing this. Lagos leads while others follow in Nigeria. In salary increment, we are leading again.

Again, two-storey building collapses in Ibadan




A two-storey building located in the Ashi area of Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, has collapsed.

The building, which is said to be used as a shopping and office complex reportedly came down at around 2 am on Monday.

Residents of the area told newsmen that no life was lost in the incident which initially made people in the area panic.

Goods were said to have been trapped under the rubble and caterpillars were later invited to clear the debris to salvage some of the goods and appliances.

Another resident, who identified himself as Taye, said the land upon which the building was erected was used as a burial ground before it was sold.

Taye said corpses were exhumed before the building was erected on the piece of land. He added that the structure had been giving a sign of possible failure before it finally collapsed.

The South-West Coordinator of the National Emergency Maintenance Agency, Saheed Akiode, told our correspondent that nobody was hurt or killed in the incident.

He said, “We went there today and we heard that the building has been there for about 30 years. But nobody was there when it collapsed because it happened at around 2am.

“The building is an office complex and efforts were being made to salvage some of the appliances and other valuables there. But we are happy that no life was lost and nobody was injured because nobody was there when it collapsed.”

The structure collapsed less than a month ago after an uncompleted five storey-building came down at Awosika Street at Bodija. Some masons who slept at the uncompleted hotel were injured in the incident which happened around 5:30 am.
