One feared dead and others injured as building collapses in Lagos during heavy rainfall



One person was feared dead and others were injured as another building collapsed in Mushin, Lagos State.

According to reports, the building located at 10, Cameroon Street in Mushin, Lagos collapsed early hours of Wednesday, July 3, 2024, during heavy rainfall.

Seven victims of the incident were rescued by sympathizers from the rubble, each with varying degrees of injuries.

A resident said the building collapsed following heavy downpours in many parts of Lagos. 

She said the Lagos rescue team was yet to respond to emergency calls as of the time of filing this report. 

This comes barely two days after a four-storey building attached to the Westbrook Hotel in the Garki area of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja collapsed.

The Federal Capital Territory Police Command confirmed the incident, three persons trapped at the building have been rescued.

In a statement, the FCT Police Command spokesperson, Josephine Adeh, said in response to a distress call, the FCT Commissioner of Police, Benneth Igweh, promptly moved to the scene with multiple patrol teams as first responders to cordon off the area for possible rescue.
