Buhari Expresses 'Extreme Sadness' Over The Building That Collapsed On School Children In Lagos 3

President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed extreme sadness over the three-storey building containing a primary school that collapsed in Lagos on Wednesday.

Many people including school children were feared trapped in the building. At least 24 victims have been rescued at the moment and taken to the Lagos General Hospital, Marina, with nine confirmed dead.

In a statement, President Muhammadu Buhari sympathised with the parents and relations of the deceased, wishing them God’s comfort and the injured speedy and complete recovery.
