A 35-year-old labourer, Ezekiel Ajibola, was killed when a
three-storey building under renovation by Keystone Bank collapsed in Palm Grove
area of Lagos on Saturday.

Director General of Lagos State Emergency Management Agency
(LASEMA), Olufemi Oke-Osanyintolu, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that
the canopy collapsed and killed the artisan on ground level.

“The concrete canopy attached above door level on ground
floor collapsed due to inadequate reinforcement under the weight of concrete
and was probably added on as an afterthought.

“The workers were working this evening around 7 p.m. and one
of the artisans was apparently polishing the floor tiles, whilst another was at
the top.

“The canopy collapsed on the artisan on ground level and he
lost his life,” the LASEMA boss said.

He, however, said that the area had been cordoned off to
prevent any secondary incident while the recovery operation was completed at
9:30 p.m.

Oke-Osanyintolu said that Lagos State Fire Service, Lagos
State Building Control Agency (LASBCA) and police were at the scene and
concluded joint efforts to retrieve the remains of the victim.
