Several people feared trapped as 21-story building collapsed at Ikoyi in Lagos State

At least one person has been confirmed dead and several injured as 21-storey building collapsed in Ikoyi area of Lagos State.

“We are also trying to bring in the military to assist in crowd control.”

Femi Oke-Osanyintolu, general manager of the Lagos State emergency management agency, said “many” workers are trapped in the rubble, without giving a precise figure.

Four construction workers at the site told AFP dozens of their colleagues were inside when the building crumbled.

“Like 40 people were inside, I see 10 bodies because I climbed up,” said Peter Ajagbe, 26, one local worker on the site.

“One of my partners is dead.”
