Buhari mourns victims of Lagos building collapse



President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with families who have lost loved ones in the 22-storey building collapse in Lagos, while some are still trapped.

A statement by the president’s spokesman, Mr Femi Adesina, on Monday in Abuja, said President Buhari shared the sad moment with people and Government of Lagos State, urging authorities to step up efforts in rescue operations.

He called on emergency institutions, including hospitals, to provide all the necessary support to safeguard the lives of the rescued.

The President prayed for God’s intervention in the ongoing rescue operations.
