A three-storey building under construction has collapsed in the Ago Palace Way axis of Lagos State.

The Director-General of Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), Dr Oluwafemi Oke-Osanyintolu, confirmed this on Friday in a situation report forwarded to Channels Television.

He revealed that a man whose identity has yet to be ascertained was trapped under the rubble.

Oke-Osanyintolu, however, noted that emergency officials were already at the scene and making efforts to rescue the trapped person.

He said the impact of the collapse has affected some adjacent buildings around the scene of the incident.

The LASEMA boss gave an assurance that once the recovery operation was completed, the remaining parts of the collapsed building would undergo a controlled demolition exercise.
