Two more bodies have been recovered from the rubble of a three-storey building that collapsed in Yaba, Lagos.

The building, which was under construction, collapsed on Saturday.

As of Saturday night, Oluwafemi Oke-Osanyintolu, the director-general of Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), had confirmed that two bodies were recovered, while two other men were found alive.

Oke-Osanyintolu also said investigation revealed that some construction workers were trapped in the building when it collapsed.


“Further investigation revealed that the construction workers numbering about five were on site when the structure came down and are still trapped underneath,” he had said.

On Sunday, a LASEMA official, who didn’t want to be named, said the total number of bodies recovered from the rubble has now increased to four.

Also, aside from the two men earlier rescued on Saturday, no other person has been found alive.
