The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) on Monday said the death toll at the collapsed three-storey building in the Ebute-Metta area of Lagos has increased to 10.

Ibrahim Farinloye, the Zonal Coordinator, South-West, NEMA, confirmed the development in Lagos.

“Two additional bodies including a four-year-old boy and a female youth corps member recovered, making 10 deaths.

“The number of rescued occupants remains 23, while six males and four females have been so far recovered dead,” Mr Farinloye said.

Recall that a three-storey building collapsed on Sunday at about 10:56 p.m. on 24 Ibadan Street, Herbert Macaulay Way, Ebute-Metta, Lagos.

However, rescue operations are still ongoing at the site of the incident in search of occupants trapped under the rubble.
