Many feared dead as mosque collapses in Lagos during prayer

A mosque collapse in the Papa Ajao area of Lagos during afternoon prayers on Sunday has resulted in the death of an unspecified number of worshippers.

Reports indicate that several lifeless bodies have been retrieved from the rubble, while the injured have been promptly transported to hospitals for medical attention.

Efforts to contact the Lagos State Police Command for further information have been unsuccessful as the Police Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, did not respond to calls.

Further details are awaited.
