The 2 graduate sisters identified as Toyin and Bukola reportedly died in the collapse of Block M20 of the building which cause is still unknown.

Bukola Coker was brought out of the debris at around 5am stone dead in her night gown while her sister, Toyin Coker a graduate of Unilag was brought out one hour later.

Affected were flats 2, 4 and 6 of the six flat low-cost houses built
over 30 years ago.

The building, Block M20, according to eye witnesses started showing
cracks and sinking over a year ago. The tragic incident as gathered,
occurred at about midnight causing a deafening sound.

It was learnt that occupants of the collapsed building apparently
ignored the warning signs of imminent danger which was evident since the
past year. Tenants in flats two and six reportedly moved out some
months ago, only for owner of flat two to lease the flat out to new
occupants.

After the incident, youths in the area reportedly began a rescue mission. The body of Mrs Coker in her unconscious state was said to be the first to be brought out from the debris at about 3am and was immediately rushed to the estate health centre. (Vanguardngr)

  1. Nigeria have a problem with maintenance:
    Houses; the door handles falling down, toilet seats broken, cracks on the floor, roof caving in, cracks on the walls. the Landlord don't bother to repaire them & end up putting people;s life in danger.

    Roads; Pot holes on the roads, No street lights on the mottor way, 2 narrow lanes for to and fro.

    The government don't bother to repaire the roads and end up putting peoples life in danger.

    We are in 21st century and people need to wise up and do the right thing first. Make your own home safe.
