Three-Storey Building Collapses In Ibadan, Injures Five

The National Emergency Management Agency has confirmed that five persons were injured the three-storey building that collapsed in the Bodija area of Ibadan, the Oyo State capital on Thursday.

NEMA also said no fatality was recorded at the collapse but the wounded persons have been hospitalised.

Lagos and Oyo have experienced a series of building collapses, despite efforts by the state government to curb the menace.

Last week, a seven-storey building caved in, killing at least five persons with fears that more bodies will be recovered from the site.

The building situated at Oba Idowu, Oniru Street collapsed on Sunday in the Victoria Island area of Lagos State.

Although the immediate cause of the collapse is still sketchy, emergency workers and security operatives have already moved to the site to rescue the trapped victims.

The situation forced the Lagos State Government to order the arrest of the developer and other building professionals working on the collapsed seven-storey building in the Victoria Island area of the state.

The most tragic recent one happened last November when a high-rise building crumbled in the Ikoyi area of the state, killing at least 44 people and injuring many others.
