Three-storey Building Collapses in Lagos

A three-storey has reportedly collapsed in the Ososa area of Bariga, Lagos State. The building collapsed around 9.30pm on Sunday.

According to the Eye witness, six people had been rescued, and that many more might be trapped in the rubble.

Residents said men of the Lagos State Fire Service were already on the ground, but were unable to gain entry yet, because the road to the scene is really bad.

He said, “I stay around the area; the building that collapsed is a residential building and the incident happened around 9.30pm. People are still there, but rescuers have been able to pull out about six people.

An official of the Lagos State Fire Service, who spoke on condition of anonymity as at the time of filing the story, said rescue operation had yet to commence as he and his colleagues had yet to access the area.

“We are here already but the road is bad and there is indiscriminate parking on the street. So, we have not been able to gain access to the building. The police are also around and we are thinking of what to do, but for now, rescue operation has not started,” he said.
