Three persons, who are believed to be construction workers, are reportedly trapped under the rubble of a three-storey building that collapsed in the Yaba area of Lagos on Saturday.
Emergency responders confirmed the incident and ongoing rescue operations to TheCable.
“Upon arrival of LASEMA response team at the incident scene, a three-storey building under construction was discovered to have collapsed,” the official reportedly said.
“Further investigation revealed that the construction workers numbering about five were on site when the structure came down and are still trapped underneath.”
The report also quoted an eyewitness who claimed part of the building had collapsed in 2021, but that construction later continued.
