UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres was “shocked and saddened” by the fatal collapse of a building in Nigeria, his spokesperson said Thursday.

   “The secretary-general will be writing to the government of Nigeria to express his condolences,” Stephane Dujarric, the spokesperson, said at a regular press briefing.

   On Wednesday, at least 12 pupils have been confirmed dead following the collapse of the three-storey building which housed a primary school in Lagos in southwestern Nigeria, according to a hospital source.

   Governor of Lagos State Akinwunmi Ambode said a thorough investigation would be launched into the incident.
