A Two-storey building in Iju area of Lagos has reportedly recorded partial collapse.

The incident was said to have occurred at Shanuaje Street at about 8pm on Sunday.

It was gathered that the back of the building caved in due to an apparent lack of maintenance just as its occupants had long been evicted from the building before the incident.

Vanguard gathered that the building had been previously marked for demolition by Lagos State Building Control Agency (LASBCA).
