President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with the families of those who died, sustained injuries, and were affected by the building collapse in the Ebute Metta area of Lagos State.
With search and rescue ongoing at the site, he prayed for divine assistance in the operations and wished those injured a speedy recovery.
The President expressed his sympathy on Monday in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina.
According to him, the frequency of building collapses in the country has become increasingly embarrassing.
President Buhari, therefore, urged the relevant state authorities to work closely with professional bodies to put a halt to such incidents which he described as unfortunate but preventable.
