Lagos state governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, says the school that collapsed in the Ilafaji area of the state yesterday March 13th, was operating illegally.
While visiting the scene of the incident, the governor said the school and shops in the three-storey building, were not authorized and were operating “illegally” in the building, which is meant solely for residential purposes. The governor added that many of the structures in the area would be demolished as they are not structurally fit
The children, most of whom are pupils of a primary school located on the top floor of the building, were rescued by officials from emergency rescue agencies and residents of the area, as hundreds swarmed the site.
They were immediately rushed to the Lagos General Hospital, Marina, where some parents anxiously trooped in to confirm if their children were fine.
