VIDEO:NEMA Confirms Three Dead In Lagos Building Collapse
Three people have been confirmed dead after a two story building under construction collapsed at the Ishaga area of Surulere, Lagos state on Sunday.
The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), initially said that two people died and three others were rescued, but sadly the body of a 13 year old girl recovered from the scene has taken the death toll to three people.
NEMA spokesman in Lagos, Mr. Ibrahim Farinloye told Channels Television that the three rescued alive have been rushed to the hospital, with one of them needing to be operated on.
Sunday’s collapse comes barely two weeks after a three-story building located at Olota Street, off Herbert Macaulay Way, Ebute Metta, Lagos collapsed, leaving seven people dead.
