    A three-story building under construction collapsed in Lagos on Sunday, October 11 evening, leaving many people dead, according to rescue officials from the Lagos office of Nigeria’s National Emergency Management Agency. Ibrahim Farinloye, the acting coordinator for the NEMA’s Lagos office, told The Associated Press on Sunday night that the rescue operation was still ongoing. Sunday’s incident comes amid accusations of industry corruption, with building developers allegedly paying off regulatory agencies meant to monitor construction work in line with strict building rules.
