The school’s proprietor has been arrested.
“The police came around and they arrested the owner of the school building. The building has no pillars, they just stacked blocks. The building was not well structured at all; there was no wiring, no pillar, and nothing to hold the building together that’s why it fell easily,” a resident said
On September 11, early on a Sunday morning, representatives from the Lagos State Building Control Agency came to the area to examine the structure.
