A seven storey Building still under construction has collapsed Sunday morning at Oba Idowu Oniru street by Avi Maria hospital close to Sand field bustop, Lekki, Lagos state .
According to the South West Cordinator, National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) Ibrahim Farinloye, six persons are said to be trapped on the third floor where two bodies have also been recovered by the emergency responders who rushed to the scene of the incident.
The Building was said to have given distressed vibrations for couple of minutes before crumbling slowly which enabled about thirty people sleeping inside the building to jump to safety.
This was the condition of the seven storey building four days before it crumbled Sunday as construction workers were sighted working at the site.
Emergency rescue operation is still ongoing by NEMA and LASEMA officials present using heavy duty equipment to rescue the trapped victims still under the rubble.
Though officials of the Lagos state Building Control Agency ( LASBCA) was said to have sealed the building on the 18th of February 2021, it still remained unclear who permitted the construction work at the site to continue.
Meanwhile search and rescue operations by the emergency responders have reached the last floor sunday evening.
