Two persons have been rescued from the debris of the three-storey building that collapsed on Sonuga Street, Palm Avenue, in the Mushin area of Lagos State.
The spokesperson of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, Nosa Okunbor, gave the update on Friday.
He said the agency was yet to recover any bodies at the scene.
The collapse on Friday happened two weeks after a similar fate befell a seven-storey building in the state.
“Two rescued. Search and rescue is ongoing. No recoveries yet,” Mr Okunbor said.
Rubbles from the collapsed building
Recently, six bodies were recovered after a seven-storey building under construction collapsed.
Two weeks after the incident, the authorities are yet to identify and arrest the developer and others.
In Lagos, the news of buildings collapsing has become a usual occurrence.
In November, at least 44 people died when a high-rise building crumbled.
In May, eight bodies were recovered after a three-storey building collapsed in Ebute-Metta.
Another building in the Ago Palace Way area of Lagos State collapsed on May 7.
In August, there was another building collapse leading to the death of two children.
