Five people are dead, while six others have been rescued as many more remain trapped after a five-storey building collapsed in Nigeria's commercial port city of Lagos on 8 March, according to the General Manager of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, Michael Akindele. The building was still under construction and was occupied by some of the workers and their families.

"So far as we speak, we had this collapsed building here in the early hours of the day and all responders are fully on ground and right now we have been able to rescue six people alive. Unfortunately we have five losses and at the same time the rescue mission is ongoing. We are hearing voices, we have assured them and, by the grace of God, we'll bring any other remaining out alive. I cannot tell you how many people are under the debris but the full operation is ongoing and we will ensure that we will do our best to rescue those under the debris,' Akindele said at the scene.

The area where the building collapsed is reclaimed land and was originally surrounded by water. Rescue operations are continuing and the number of trapped victims is yet to be confirmed.
