It is a black Democracy Day in Lagos, as another three-storey building on Lagos Island collapsed on Monday morning with two people confirmed dead and several others still trapped.
This is the fourth building to have collapsed in Lagos in less than months.
Naijapals gathered that the collapsed three-storey building was being renovated with people inside when it caved in.
Rescue operation is still ongoing as emergency responders are working frantically to rescue trapped victims in the building located at Daddy Alhaja Street, Oke Arin, Lagos Island, Lagos, Southwest Nigeria.
General Manager, Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, LASEMA, Adesina Tiamiyu told Naijapals that 14 people had so far been rescued alive.
He confirmed that two people had so far died in the collapsed building while rescue operation continued to rescue other trapped victims.
