It was a sad day for the people of Lagos yesterday as a school storey building collapsed with over 100 pupils in it.
There are rescue teams and several volunteers at the collapse site trying as much as they can to save as many lives as possible. Some have been pronounced dead while others are still trapped within.
Lasema Response Unit went to the scene with “We Echo devices” which they claimed can scan for any alive persons under the rubble.
Let’s hope the device help hasten the rescue process.

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 building is not technically a school, it is a residential building that was actually accommodating an illegal school, so to speak, on the second floor,” he said.
