Ogun school building collapses

A one-storey building with 10 blocks of classrooms has collapsed at the Agbado District Comprehensive High School in Ifo Local Government Area of Ogun State.

The building collapsed on Saturday afternoon during heavy rainfall, leaving the community in shock.

Locals said pupils and teachers might have been victims if the structure had fallen during school days.

Eyewitnesses described the incident as “a calamity waiting to happen,” saying it was a result of government’s failure to respond to distress calls on the dilapidated building.

The collapsed building had been a cause for concern for over 15 years as it posed a serious threat to the lives of students and staff.

Kolawole Adelani, a welder and resident of Oke Aro, recounted: “The school building collapsed on Saturday. I witnessed it. It happened when it was raining. The building had been there for more than 15 years and was plagued with structural issues. We all knew it would give way one day, but the authorities did nothing about it. Thank God, no lives were lost. This would have been a disaster if it had happened during the weekdays.”
