Mother, daughter die in Lagos collapsed building
Tragedy struck on Saturday during Lagos State’s local council polls as a mother and her daughter were killed when a building collapsed on them.
The building, which was under construction at No. 7 Seidu Okeleji, Alaro, Meiran, collapsed, killing the 30-year-old mother, identified as Basirat and her child, Bisoye.
FIDELITY REPORTERS learnt that the incident happened at 11: 48 am.
An eyewitness told our correspondent that the woman and her children were doing their chores when the building crashed on them.
He said, “The woman, Mama Moyin and her two children were washing clothes in the uncompleted building when the building collapsed on them.”
The other child, Moyin, was rescued by the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency.
The General Manger of LASEMA, Adesina Tiamiyu, said an investigation would be carried out by the appropriate agencies to determine the exact cause of the collapse, as he advised building owners and developers to adhere to building codes and physical planning laws of the state to avert unnecessary loss of lives.
