At about 8.30 am this morning, 13th of May, a section of the four-storey ultramodern shopping complex building collapsed, in the busy Itoku market in Abeokuta, Ogun State.

This should prompt the housing authorities to intensify supervision of building projects. As incidents like this have been reported in the past, regulatory bodies should set and adhere to building standards to reduce the number of occurrences.

Though the number of casualties are yet unconfirmed, here are pictures from the scene.
