According to Femi Oke-Osanyintolu, director-general of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), the building which is still under construction collapsed around 4:10pm.
“It is a two-storey building under construction. LASEMA already activated the Lagos Emergency Response Plan for all first responders to move to the site of the collapsed building,” he said.
