Agboye Estate

On Sunday evening, two persons were critically injured and currently receiving medical attention after a school-turned-residential building in the Ketu area of Lagos State partially collapsed.

The building which is said to be housing over 500 rooms with hundreds of residents known as Agboye Estate on Oduntan Street, Ketu, first caved in on Saturday afternoon following hours of rainfall that greeted most parts of Lagos, PUNCH reports.

On Sunday afternoon, as residents were still trying to salvage their belongings, the building crumbled again, destroying another structure inside the compound before collapsing completely.

The development sent panic across the area, forcing hundreds of families and individuals residing in the building to vacate the premises.
