Several school children in Nigeria are feared dead, after a building that housed their school collapsed on Wednesday in the country’s commercial capital Lagos.
There was no immediate information on any casualties, Ibrahim Farinloye, spokesman for the National Emergency Management Agency’s southwest region, said.
Parents were reportedly rushing to the school to see if their children were involved.
Nigeria is frequently hit by building collapses, with weak enforcement of regulations and poor construction materials often used. In 2016, more than 100 people were killed when a church came down in southeastern Nigeria.

In Lagos that same year, a five-storey building still under construction collapsed, killing at least 30 people.
A floating school built to withstand storms and floods was also brought down in Lagos in 2016, though with no casualties reported.
