Video - 8 people killed, 15 rescued from Lagos building rubble
Eight people were killed and fifteen rescued, when a four-storey building collapsed in a densely populated area of Nigeria’s commercial capital, Lagos. Rescue operations have since ended and the site has now been condoned off. Officials of the Lagos State building Control Agency blame the collapse on foundation failure caused by excessive load on the building. A telecommunication mast had been erected on the building weeks ago without the necessary approval.
