Lagos State Emergency Management Agency has debunked claims that over 100 pupils were trapped in the collapsed building on No . 63 Massey Street , Ita Faaji area of Lagos Island.
General Manager, LASEMA , Mr Adeshina Tiamiyu , speaking at the site of the collapsed building on Thursday morning , said , “ I have seen the picture of the building before it collapsed and I can confirm to you that the floor that housed the school cannot accommodate up to 100 pupils . ”
Tiamiyu , however , didn ’ t give the figure of pupils in the school .
He said , “ only the school administrator can tell us the number of pupils in the school , but the proprietor is also at the hospital receiving treatment and we can ’ t confirm that now . ”
