I was taking a look through my pictures of the last time I went to Lagos and I found this picture.
Look at the building in the centre of the picture.
Does anybody have any idea what happened to this building? I remember asking the stevedores who came onto my ship and none of them knew what had happened to it.
Just thought I would ask.

I think the collapsed building was a possibly a bank where there they had an explosion, as far as I remember, one person died from debris falling from the building, this probably occured around 18 months ago or so, if it's the same bulding I'm thinking of.
There was also another explosion involving a Lagos bank in 2003:
At the time the accident took place, Nigerians celebrated and gave thanks to God that it occurred on a public holiday when thousands of public and private organisations whose offices were on the high rise building were not around.
However, while we have enjoyed Godís mercy, our government seems to be tempting Him more by believing that if and when the remaining part decides to collapse, God will also make it to happen on a weekend.

I know I shouldn't laugh, but in the Daily Sun article was this line:
That incident caused panic, leading to hundreds running for safety, only to die en masse in the carnal.
