Sad! 16 Yr Old Newly Married Girl Dies In Building Collapse In Lagos

A makeshift building located at Kuata Area by Amara Olu Street, Mechanic Village, Agidingbi, Ikeja, collapsed Tuesday, and killed a 16-year-old girl named Faizan Muritala who only got married to her husband Mohammed 10 days ago. ‎


The collapse of the building was attributed to a mudslide. This incident occurred less than 24 hours after a mosque situated at 3, Adepitan Street, off Ramat Crescent, Ojudu, partially collapsed.

Following the heavy rainfall that have been witnessed in Lagos recently, many houses with defective structure have been identified, forcing the state government to issue evacuation notices to residents.

According to eyewitnesses, the deceased who was inside one of the shanties at the time of the incident, was trapped under the mudslide. The deceased’s husband and mother were outside when the incident occurred and their screaming made other occupants to flee their shanties.

Confirming the incident, the General Manager, Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), Michael Akindele and Southwest spokesman for the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), Ibrahim Farinloye, said the state Commissioner for Environment, Dr. Babatunde Adejare, who visited the scene, has ordered the demolition of the other structures, insisting that the area was not habitable.

He warned residents of flood prone communities in the state to relocate to upland areas until after the heavy rains to avert loss of lives.
