Foursquare Gospel Church building at Ojodu Berger collapses

A three-storey building situated at 14 Bashiru Street Ojodu Berger collapsed this afternoon killing at least one person. Two others have been brought out alive as rescue efforts continue to extract people trapped under the building. The building is said to belong to Foursquare Gospel Church.

It was a 3-storey building but the church recently started to add a fourth storey when it suddenly collapsed.

Why a fourth storey if the foundation isn't solid enough?
My heart goes out to them and the victims @dis critical time, yet we must not blame the devil for such tragic occurrence.
Wisdom is profitable to direct.
lt is well!

Nigerian Engineers "only theory no practical" common building you can build shame on you all. BTW, I don't think I should blame you, it's actually the system.

That's what we get trying to be greedy.You don't just "add" another building on top of one simply because you can afford it.it requires prior tests carried out to ascertain if the foundation will hold and stress tests carried out on materials used earlier so as to avoid these kind of "Human error-induced" disasters.It is High time we learnt from our mistakes.RIP to lost souls..

This is certainly what greed n selfishness has caused. i guess d foundation wasn't even strong enough to carry d three storey building there let alone making it a four storey building. Its a pity how d innocent had to lose deir lives n properties

I think d owners should be sued to court for negligence and manslaughter, or even murder!!! Its high time we Nigerians start taking legal action on such foolish 'human induced disasters' and get a handsome damages paid and such murderers jailed for like 10 years

May be the foundation wasn't even meant to carry 3 story not to talk of 4.

This is no news. It happened to the Tower of Babel in the Bible. Genesis11:1-9.

Who's smart idea was it to add a fourth storey without consulting the relevant authorities or seeking the needed approval.

Even churches don't play by the rules now see the result,!!!!

Nonsense country

Religion is just eye service

Its always a bad idea to add more floors to a foundation that originally held fewer flats isn't it?

Thank God the buiding did not cave in on a Sunday. There will have been more casualties. Thank God for little mercies. Na so for my compound, the lady upstairs is always pounding yam. You can feel the house shaking whilst she does that. I keep praying for divine protection. Amen.

You guys on here should please talk with a little sense, because a building collapsed doesnt mean make fun of it, it could have happened to any building of any church, there's nothing like greed in the matter. Think before talking. God bless
