The school is said to have been on the top of a three-story building.


A building containing a primary school has collapsed in the Nigerian city of Lagos with pupils feared to be among the dead and injured.

The school is said to have been on the top floor of the three-story building, which is said to also contain several apartments.

There is no word on casualties yet but and emergency teams are attempting to pull injured people from the rubble.

It is no unusual for building in Nigeria to collapse – materials are often sub-standard and there are weak enforcements of regulations according to BBC correspondents.

In 2016 more than 100 people died after the roof of a church in Uyo, in the south of Nigeria, caved in.
