A three-storey building has collapsed in Fagba area of Lagos state, injuring at least twelve people.
It was gathered that the building, which was under construction, collapsed on Wednesday night, leaving many people trapped in the rubble.
Olufemi Oke-Osanyintolu, the chief executive officer of Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), confirmed the incident to reporters.
She said there were no mortalities recorded, and that victims of the incident are currently undergoing treatment.
“This is just to inform you that a three-storey building collapsed at K Farm, Fagba, Off Iju Road,” she said.
“It was a building under construction, and people occupying the building have been evacuated and the injured are responding to treatment.
“No mortalities recorded. All the key stakeholders that are important in managing disaster in Lagos are on ground.
“However the building will be pulled to ground zero for safety of the people living in the area.
“All the buildings adjacent or beside the collapsed building will be subjected to solid material testing, for your information.”
