The recent heavy downpour in Lagos state has left many areas flooded, people homeless and trails of sorrow behind.

Faizan Muritala, a 16 year old, died on Tuesday, September 6, 2016, following the collapse of the building she was in.

The building located at Kuata by Amara Olu Street, around Mechanic Village in Agidingbi, Ikeja, collapsed as a result of a mudslide, according to The Nation.

Prior to the collapse of the building which claimed the life of the teenage bride, another one at 3, Adepitan Street, off Ramat Crescent, Ojudu, had also collapsed.
