Two children died after they were trapped beneath the rubble of a storey-building which collapsed in the Gafari Balogun area of Ogudu, Lagos State today June 17.

The Director-General, Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, Olufemi Oke-Osanyintolu, who confirmed this to newsmen, said the building collapsed due to mudslide resulting from a downpour. 

He said their bodies have been recovered from the mud.

“The LASEMA Response Team received a distress call at 12.40 pm about the collapse of a one-storey building at the Gafari Balogun Street in Ogudu.

On arrival at the scene, the agency’s responders observed that the building collapsed as a result of a mudslide at the rear of the building which was caused by heavy rainfall. 

The agents were informed that two children, one male, and one female were trapped and immediately commenced a search and rescue operation. Unfortunately, they were found dead and their remains had been transported to the mortuary. 

Integrity testing will be carried out on the remainder of the building which has now been cordoned off.” he said
