On Wednesday, November 17, 2021, four construction workers were found dead after a building collapsed in the Badagry area of Lagos State.
The storey building, located at Flour Mills Estate, Magbon Bus Stop, was under construction and trapped nine construction workers, all men, at the site.
Five of them were rescued and taken to the hospital for medical treatment, but four were recovered dead from under the rubble.
The Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) demolished the building and cordoned it off.
The building collapsed just weeks after a 21-storey building, one of three luxury high-rise buildings under construction, collapsed in Ikoyi, also in Lagos, trapping dozens of people.
15 people were rescued, but at least 45 men and women were confirmed dead after over a week of recovery operation by emergency responders.
