Find out why there is no end to building collapse in Lagos

In this video, The President, Nigerian Institution of Structural Engineers, Peter IgbiniJesu, has said most old buildings in Lagos State have outlived their usage.
IgbiniJesu, who is also a fellow of the Nigerian Society of Engineers, said buildings have expiration dates, adding that a building should stand for at least 99 years depending on how often it is maintained.
He said an integrity test should be carried out on buildings every five years.
That is even as the death toll recorded during the building collapse, which happened Sunday, on Ibadan Street, in the Ebute Metta area of Lagos State, has increased to eight.
A statement by the National Emergency Management Agency confirmed the development Monday 3 May.
“Two male additional bodies were recovered, making eight deaths,” the acting coordinator, NEMA, Ibrahim Farinloye, said.
